Several years ago my friend JR looked at picture of a peacock that I’d taken and made me promise to pick up any peacock feathers I might find so he could use them to make flies for his fishing habit. The other day, when Di and I were at the Farmers Market, I saw one booth that had a bucket full of peacock feathers for sale. JR will be at our house in a few weeks and I’ll give him 3 of the plumes. How he carries them on an extended road trip in a car is his problem 🙂
I set up to take some closeups of the feathers and some wheat that I collected recently. All this in the name of collecting images that illustrate texture in another project I’m working on this year. YIKES… it’s July… gotta get going on these self-inflicted projects!
