neck ruff feather from a ruffed grouse
love the line of subtle blue
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.

if you ever want to get into natural dyeing the sumac is a wonderful source of natural tannin
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!
I love how you arranged the branches, also the feathers in the previous post.

What a beautiful rock.
Isn’t she a beauty? Almost perfectly round. I have lots of rock, but she is one of my favorites.
