Phyllis and I left the kids with Rachel on Sunday and went for a hike in Tilden Park. We found this tail feather (I think it is from a hawk) on one of the ridges.
When I brought it home, I beamed light through the feather to bring out its colors and translucency. Then I photographed the feather extremely close-up.
Here’s another feather I photographed up close (click here for the original story about the feather):
