Sunlight Slivers on Peacock Feathers

January 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Brrrr....so bitter cold, safer to stay indoors than head out in single-digit freezing weather. Yet slivers of sunlight in midmorning brighten surroundings. Peacock feathers benefit especially. Iridescent blues and green sparkle owing to the optical effect of structural coloration, close knit barbs filtering and reflecting light in combination with pigmented brown color. The peacock's eye pattern in sunlight is spectacular, warming an interior on a icy-temperature day, the room, my heart. P1070038P1070038 P1070043P1070043 P1070029P1070029
