Day 322 - A Tiny Piece of Yosemite

While we were in Yosemite, Nell picked up a tiny feather from one of the bluejays (?) at our campsite and I've been carrying it around ever since. This shot didn't come out that well because it was such an extreme close-up (the whole feather is about an inch long and this section is probably less than a centimeter). I just don't have the equipment to get a really clear shot at this level of magnification. But I like the lines and the vividness of the color. I've taken a few other shots like this, so I'm officially retiring feathers as a photo subject.

  1. Nice shot! I like it. Maybe someday you'll get a nice macro lens.
