Aren't the colours amazing? The feather's eyes reminding me of being studded with gems! Turquoises, electric blues and greens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Vibrant and neon colours all perfectly balanced!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I took this photo of this fabulous peacock strutting his beautiful feathers within the gardens at the Seaforde Butterfly House in N.Ireland a few years ago.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are lucky you might find a feather in the stately gardens or you could buy a fallen one as a token in the shop!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But are they lucky or unlucky? My granny always thought that having a peacock feather in your house was unlucky because the 'eye' was watching you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yet there are so many amulets in other cultures that focus on 'eyes' to protect you against the 'evil eye'!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you think? Do you have a peacock superstition? I'd love to know?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me, the colours are fascinating and you can see the mix of blues and greens translated into my pieces! Yum Yum Yum!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Come and get up close with a large tree nymph, also known as a paper kite butterfly.  From today, face masks must be worn in the Butterfly House and Shop.

Day 10 - a snap from the Seaforde Tropical Butterfly House. Definitely an enjoyable day out for all ages! Walled garden with some eye catching flowers, resident peacock strutting its stuff, and the main feature being the butterfly house itself. Butterflies, turtles, exotic birds, and even a little insect display towards the exit - what more could you want? 🦋🐢🐦🐜 #photography #canonphotography #turtle #seafordegardens #seafordebutterflyhouse #seaforde #wildlife
