      Thank you so much. These are parrot feathers found on a parrot at the zoo. They look like they are made from gemstones, don’t they. ~amy

  3. Ooooo … I like this, very much. A parrot, right? I notice lots of what’s called moire while looking at this on my computer screen … if I remember correctly it’s what happens when patterns occur on a finer scale than the resolution of your sensor … what sort of camera are you using to record images for this blog.
