{décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock}

While preparing our place for a shoot awhile ago, had remarked, in all seriousness, that the pièce de résistance would be a white peacock, just as in Ryan Korban's New York apartment.  [Often mistakenly referred to as an albino peacock, it is actually a white peacock, and a genetic variant of the Indian Blue Peafowl.]  Either way, it is elegant and exotic, dramatic and undeniably beautiful . . .

{p.s.} did you know that, just as snakes shed their skins, every year, "toward the end of summer, peacocks finish shaking their tail feathers, and their stunning plumage gradually falls off. This shedding process, called molting, is a common part of most birds' lives. Feathers can wear out and lose their functionality over time, and since these feathers aren't self-regenerating, birds must replace them entirely." [source: Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology]

I love your posts but felt I had to comment on this one. I do not agree with the use of peacocks feathers in fashion, to pluck them out or 'harvest' them is a crime.

Feathers can wear out and lose their functionality over time, and since these feathers aren't self-regenerating, birds must replace them entirely [source: Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology]. This molting process is the same type of biological change that happens when snakes shed their skins. Hormones trigger the beginning of the molting process, which is timed to occur after the mating season to allow for the energy required to grow the new feathers [source: Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology].

My family had peacocks my entire life - they roamed free on our farm and especially like to be with the ponies. At the end of every summer we had so many molted feathers we couldn't give them away.

The use of peacock feathers is entirely acceptable. It's recycling at its best.
