Never one to miss an opportunity, my husband took this Northern Flicker feather and made it the focus of his recent class in close-up photography. We spent a full day in the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, seeking out backgrounds for my flicker feather. "The Feather as Art" is the result.
Beginning with moss, moving to bark patterns in a Western Red Cedar stump, progressing to sword ferns, then rocks, he was able to create a photo that highlights the beauty of a simple bird feather. This is such a special place if you take the time to look.
