FIXED LENS PHOTO CHALLENGE # 122~ Feathers
I chose this as a subject today because as I was cleaning up from last evening's snowstorm [again], I found 3 turkey feathers in three different locations at work today. Odd to me to find so many, but chosen an the topic.
Let's see some feathers, it's up to you to decide what or which, but rest assured, big 80's feathered hair will not count.
Remember, if you post a photo, you may be the winner. Be prepared to host a new challenge.

Due to my work schedule, I will try my best to start the tally by 3pmEST
