Macro Monday - Tail Feather.

This is a feather from (I think) the tail of a Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo. They have splendid yellow panel in their tail and I assume this is one of the feathers that make up that panel. Its not as yellow as it could be, and its got spots, so I think its from a young bird.

  2. nice. maybe it is like our cardinal feathers. they look pink when they're alone, but together make a brilliantly red bird. :)

  3. Great shot, Stewart! Love the detail!
