Madmum is also looking at this photo from an artist's point of view, and she's right. Great background colours. :o)

Dear Madmum, Terratoonie, Skippy5869 and Margerite,

I was inspecting my drying onions under the shed eaves when Mrs Nails called me on the mobile. While we chatted this peacock landed next to my shoulder. I pulled camera from my pocket and snapped the picture one-handed. The flash was on from a previous shot and that is why it looks so incredible I think.

Pure coinciding of luck and chance! I'm glad you have enjoyed it too.

Best wishes, Dirty Nails

Oh, Dirtynails - don't spoil it by trying to sell things! It's not that sort of site.

Dear Spritzhenry,

So sorry. My mistake and apologies. Went through all this yesterday and feel really bad for upsetting folk. Have decided to withdraw quietly and sincerely hope you're not offended.

Best wishes, Dirty Nails
