interesting and beautiful

interesting and beautiful

When people ask me how I choose my STILL subjects, I tell them I have two criteria: it has the be either beautiful or interesting, and ideally both. These ruffed grouse feet* are certainly interesting. You will have to tell me if you think they are also beautiful.

*For the nerds: Those comb-like pectinations growing laterally from the scales of the feet act to significantly increase the surface area so they function like snowshoes.

    They are not just beautiful, they are gorgeous!

  • Old Lady Gardener says:

    I suppose it depends on whether you are another ruffled grouse with a foot fetish or not, heh heh. Kidding aside, the design and function is indeed beautiful… look at that detail!!
