    Bloody beautiful… I was thinking hmmmm bet she was with Andrew because I commented on one of his about a peacock tail and this is what this reminds me of. :)
    Both different though and both wonderful :D

  • Andrew & I were positioned not far from one another .. OH yes I see it now.. it does resemble a peacock’s tail… a very good eye …. thanks for your wonderful comment…
