Peacock blue

Lokrum Island is a short boat ride away from the hustle and bustle of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

It’s a nature reserve dominated by wild bunnies and peacocks and peahens.

The hens had just had their babies – here they are doing some synchronized grooming.

The peacocks are pretty serious about grooming too!

His head seems to have disappeared into his feathers.

Sat and enjoyed the view
