Floating Feather

I followed this Feather floating down the river Slee on Sunday, taking photos of it as it was floating and spinning around on its way - I wonder how far it has reached by now?? maybe reaching the sea, or a young lad fishing it out and sticking it in his hair and pretending he was an Indian Warrior.

Look at the soft down...this is lovely. I smiled at the image of the young lad picking it up and sticking it in his hair. Very likely...

Interesting, even a feather has its "life story"... :) Where will it end up? Perhaps in a pillow? Oh, not when it's so damp...
God bless you!

so like the feather's design :)
and yes, perhaps it was plucked up by someone as it made its way down stream :) and maybe someone stuck it in a vase.
have a wonderful evening.

How would you like to be that feather, Mac???? You would go all around the world --just floating around with no worries in the world.... Sounds pretty nice, doesn't it?????

The mind of a poet at work again here Imac....
By the way... Why did the Indian chief have so many feathers in his head-dress?
