Feathers

My sister mentioned that a friend of hers wanted some chicken feathers for tying fishing flies, so I've been been on the lookout for them whenever I go out now. I'd never really paid too much attention before, but chickens naturally lose a lot of feathers. It's been fun to gather the pretty ones up. I've been keeping them in an old canning jar, but today I put them in a bowl to take a photo of them. Nature is so beautiful.

  1. Beautiful!

  2. My dad uses feathers (and the fur his wolf-dog sheds) for tying flies too. They work really, really well. However, whenever he sends me one in a care package, I can never bring myself to use it, because they are so beautiful! Honestly, my dad ends up creating little works of art. I always end up putting them in my curio cabinet. hehe
