Playing with a peahen feather

The peahens we encountered at Talisker Bay were busy moulting, and I managed to find an undamaged example lying near our car.  Today I scanned it with a sheet of crumpled purple tissue paper as background, then cropped it to see what emerged.
Here are a few results:


  1. I was immediately drawn to the graphic top section & was not disappointed with its possibilities as shown in your crop. That was the obvious one but oh my - so much potential in those less obvious places.

  2. what a gorgeous feather and lovely scans!

  3. That black and white graphic section so appeals to me too, especially where there are glimpses of purple where the strands of the feather separate ... beautiful!
