I'm a notorious procrastinator. Can I really stick to the project? Can I post one photo a day for 365 days? The pressure is almost unbearable.

(I DID IT! I stuck to the original project and in 2010 I took two photographs every day, for two different groups! I'm going to continue to add 365 photos per year to this blog, but they probably will not be taken on consecutive days. That is too much to ask...)

feathers find me

tiny feather, originally uploaded by phlegmmy.

You can see how tiny this feather is. I found it on a wet, dark brown boardwalk at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. You can imagine how much it blended in, but I still spotted it. This has been an amazing summer of feather finds. Because of my cancer surgery and treatment, I was home for most of the summer and many days never left. But I always went outside for a bit to get some fresh air and to bemoan the fact that no gardening was getting done. And over the course of the summer I found probably 7 or 8 Blue Jay feathers. I never actively looked--they were just where I happened to be looking. I took it as a sign that my guardian angel was indeed sticking close and doing her job. :-)
