Feathers!

24th July 2012: There isn’t much happening in Hoo Wood at the moment. Most of the blooms have withered away, apart from Himalayan balsam and honeysuckle. We are entering a period of green, when nothing much happens. Anyway, Walking through the wood, there wasn’t much to capture my imagination, so I photographed a few feathers … not very inspiring!

  1. I like your beattiful white feather so pretty and soft looking, trade you for some long Turkey ones! Have a wonderful day.

  2. I think the feathers make lovely images – their softness & simplicity cannot compare with anything else.

  3. Thank you, Christine. Don’t forget that you will need steady hands to go with the macro lens. 😉

  4. These inspired me Mike….I found a Pelican feather yesterday..love them in flight..so maybe I’ll
    Try to photograph it. What is your macro lens……I was going to buy one, but ended up with a 12-24 wide angle, which I love..but someday want to try macro…but I know it’s HARD, so I wondered
    What you would recommend..then I can put it on my “someday” list 🙂

    • I use a canon 500D camera and a 60 mm EFS f2.8 macro lens. As with many other things, Suzanne, the more you use it, the easier it becomes. 🙂
