When I find feathers I try to imagine the point at which the thing once attached to a bird. How does it stay in there and how does it come out? Is it like hair in a follicle? Terrific image here, Nox. The back ground holds a strange resonance for me. I think to soothe myself I could watch it for hours. All that detail.
yes, Elizabeth, you've hit upon what's uniqueabout this shot...even though the feather purports to be the subject, the backgrounddoes not agree. it will notgive up center stage. i supposeit's because of the composition,where the center of focus (the tuft) is a slight blur whereas the textureof the ground is sharp.oh, as to the natureof feathers themselves, i thinkthey're a crossbetween scales and hair, yes?thank you, as always,for your thoughtfulremarks.
Soft falls on hard? Love the silvery sheen of the feather.
