Peacock feather (Detail) by antvision

Peacock feather (Detail)

Still experimenting with my macro lens, trying to get used to the focal field & range. I'm sort of figuring out that I need to be even closer to my subject than this, for optimal focus coverage. But I like how this turned out, with the edges of the feather being all that's in focus. The colors, too... I was real happy with how they turned out!

And is it just me, or does the center of the feather look kinda like a heart to you? That's really strange because I didn't alter the photo to look like that, and it doesn't look that way to the naked eye, either. Only in my photo. Bizarre, huh?
It does look like a heart! And I really like the way this one turned out too - the way you can see every individual vien of the feather...if they are called viens. The colors are so rich and deep. It is magazine worthy!
