Mr Peacock

Here are a few shots of a peacock taken recently at Scone Palace in Scotland.  Although native to Southern Asia and Malaysia, they are commonly seen in  stately homes, palaces and castles in the UK.  Owing to their spectacular appearance and fan like rear feathers it is no surprise that the Chinese then the Europeans just had to import them.
