Oh Sweet Vanity

I admit it, I'm a very vain person. But it is my belief that one of the vainest creatures in existence is the male peacock. Everything about them from their colors to their huge, beautiful tails screams look at me.

When I lived in California, a friend of mine lived on a farm and had a wide array of animals. From horses to goats to pigs, and even a little flock of peacocks. One of the last times I was there before I moved, I grabbed some of the male peacock feathers from off the ground and kept them. I still have them to this day and they're just as beautiful as they ever were. So, in case you couldn't tell, that's what this photo is of. A close up of a feather from a male peacock. My little symbol of vanity.
