The illusion of flight (theme)

2010.06.30

I knew I wouldn’t have time to take photos of birds in flight today but I came up with the idea for this shot as I watered the garden yesterday evening. I found a fluffy feather stuck to a leaf and remembered the feather I found on a day trip some weeks ago. At first I tried dropping it in front of the lens and trying to capture it in flight. However, it rapidly became obvious I was onto a loser there as the feather kept veering out of my depth of field so all I got were blurry shots or ones of an empty black background! Instead I decided to create the illusion of flight by suspending the feather with some black thread which I have since cloned out. It may be an illusion but at least I managed to fulfil the theme to some degree!

revenant OK, this one also escape the browse/friends list. But it's fun to come and find it manually...

Lovely idea, great shot.
I wonder what bird this was from it looks black and white or is that just the shadows?
