Feathers caught on thorns.

9th December 2012: These feathers are the final remnants of a marsh fox kill at the edge of a small copse. They have attracted my eye for at least a month; the bramble thorns have prevented their escape. Now that I have recorded their existence, maybe the brambles will release their grip and allow the feathers to be taken by the howling winds that frequently blow through this area.

    • There are not many things that remain in one place on the marsh for a long time that I don’t see, Phil. 🙂

    • Ha ha! The pigeon my feather images once belonged to has long since been rested in a marsh fox’s stomach. It’s now fertilising marsh grass, I expect. 🙂
