      Me too. And I never knew it was there until I photographed it. This project has been fun that way.

    I love how you can see the barbs so clearly (just looked that word in order to be able to describe them correctly). Very delicate.

      Ha! I looked up the parts of a feather too, for the very same reason! Now I know several new words like rachis and calamus.

      Interesting. I have used natural dyes to pigment papers for my collage work. So far I mostly have played with coffee, teas, and vegetables like beets. I’ll try sumac!
