Defrosting

It's strange what you see when out on a slow dog walk with Lesia and her poorly leg. I didn't expect to see this feather. It was a small soft feather that was still slightly frozen after the frost last night.
Couldn't resist a shot.
I don't usually like black and white but I think it suits this photo.
Beautifully captured, great details when viewed large!

Perfect in bw! Lovely detail. A must view large! Made me think about the things I could possibly put in the freezer to see what I get.

@happysnap That's a good idea, hadn't thought of that!

I like the b&w. It seems to enhance the textures.

Beautifully done! Love the drops of water on the thawing feather, the detail and sharpness in the front as it fades to a softer focus, and I do agree that the B&W suits this simple but powerful image.

Just gorgeous. That's a fav for me. (Someone told me many years ago that when you come across a white feather it's because your guardian angel is nearby!).

@plasticpilchard that's lovely. I could do with a guardian angel right now! Thanks for the fave.
