The peacock's crown and colorful tail feathers makes him look so regal.
The many colors of the peacock's feather, which usually include shimmering greens and blues, are the result of a phenomena called interference. Similar to the colors seen on butterflies, pheasants, hummingbirds and birds of paradise, interference is the reflection of light on each feather's tiny, bowl-shaped indentation, which reflects the light and causes the color to shimmer.
