Macro Monday: All That Remains

Snow Feather

I found this one tiny, downy feather lying alone on the snowy path in our woods. I wouldn't have noticed if not for the spark of red. A cardinal, I think, must have passed that way.

Stunning. I have never seen a cardinal feather. How very tiny and perfect.

I hope the owner of this feather and the kitty portrayed in the previous post didn't meet somewhere along the way! Our cat is finally willing to spend more than a few minutes outside now that the temps are up into the 60s (70s tomorrow!).

Thanks, everyone! Glad you liked this one.

Walk2, no cats and no gory scene, just a small single feather dropped in the snow.

Daryl - You always make me laugh. And of course you're right. There's something to shoot everywhere. ;-)

Char - It's a Canon G9. Just a point and shoot, but a pretty good one.

Lisa - Yes, I found it in the woods behind the house.
