Ocellation (eye of peacock feather)

....One of nature's most beautiful creations, peacock feathers have been a source of inspiration for many. I'm especially fascinated by their iridescence. I took this feather with me on a trip to Churchill, Manitoba where we were going to photograph polar bears. I knew I was going to be cooped up in a trailer for days and possibly not see bears at all. So at least I had something to paint, if nothing else showed up.
