Saw one of these the other day in my local park but it's wings were a lot more tatty that your's here, Ed, so I declined a shot: you for sure have had a wealth of such subjects this year in your neck of the woods, and this is another very nicely captured specimen of the Peacock.

That pov really does give the impression of a face, with the upper blue markings as the eyes. Superbly taken, Ed.
