Very late last night while still cleaning in a corner of my studio
(you'd think my studio was huge, but really I'm just slow!  Besides this is Deep Cleaning!)
I found this beautiful treat under a stack of...stuff!
I have no recall where it is from or what kind of bird it belonged to.  
I obviously placed it under stuff that is rarely touched to keep it safe.
It's the most beautiful blue.
The little fuzzies kept falling off, floating away as I handled it.

I wonder how the little holes got there.
Low and Behold when I turned it over, I saw that it was a magic feather!
Trying to capture the blueness of it, it looks like a painting!
Wowzie- surreal looking
Gotta love all those lines (barbs) and fuzz!
 Sadly, even later last night my neighbor's cat woke me when it killed a small sparrow right outside the bedroom window.  I think I need a nap!

the next to the last image looks like a beautiful watercolor painting. maybe it captured part of the blue sky as it floated down.

Cindy- I was wondering! It is so worn, this feather.

Michelle- Perhaps, but I have never seen a gull near here that is anything but gray and white. Thank you for the compliment of feeling inspired. That's nice to know. We Are OK!

Deanna- I was tempted to post all 12 photos - they each had something different to offer! Yes I thought, "How does a photo look like a painting - so much?"
Made me think of Deb and her sky scarf!
