  1. You can see how the birds always seem to look so dry!

  2. I love how the water beads up on the feather. What a wonderful photo, Tom!

  3. If the water is merely beading up on the surface, is the feather really wet?

  4. Maybe that’s why they bathe so vigorously. They’re scotchguarded!!!

  5. @ Young Naturalist J – I think this is a goose feather which probably had some of its waterproofing on it! Great observation!
    @ Pam – thanks and just had to take its picture for a Wordless Wednesday! Thanks
    @ Nick – I never picked it up . . . should have though! Great question but was also getting rained on at the time!
    @ Mary – Maybe! 🙂 I really need to get my birdbath going again! Thanks

  7. @ NaturesPalette – This post is really for tomorrow but many of us obsessed with blogging find it just as quickly as I post it! Others will end up finding this tomorrow (WED)!

    Another early bird… I like the photo it shows how water repellant a feather can be.

    Almost Wednesday. Now we know how they stay dry, you need to show us how they stay warm.

  14. Lovely little composition, there. A minimalist subject, yet so much going on. Nice one!

    Nick; Very Zen. 😉

  15. Yep you are right I find your posts in the morning usually.
    So for me it is Wednesday.
    Amazing creatures birds are and how they seem to stay dry and warm. I like how the water just beads up.

  16. Beautiful shot for the weather around here lately.

  17. Wow, it’s a lovely photograph. There’s a whole story in the elements there: the suburban grass, the fallen feather, the rain.

  18. Another beautiful picture Tom! I would love to see a macro shot of the drops. It looks like the water is magnifying the texture of the feathers.

  19. Simply divine!
