I'm a details person, so this is probably easier for me than other. For example, one day many years ago, I observed a beetle in front of me. It had a decorative shell so I took the opportunity to not just note that the shell was eye catching, but to specify what exactly made it up to be so mesmerizing.
I also did this exercise with a peacock. I know your mind immediately jumped to the beautiful tail of the male, but I'm not even thinking about the tail! Allow me to illustrate - or at least try...
Here are [most of] the colors found commonly on peacocks . . . I wouldn't necessarily combine them all in one creation . . .
. . . but in nature, they are perfect.
Now let's look at some of the different patterns and textures!
Again, not what I would think to pair together . . .
Here, you see how the colors actually look together on the real creature:
And now for the whole bird -
Magnificent!!! And you're probably not even looking at the tail!
