Another thing I collect are feathers, I found a cute spoon collectors shelf to house them all in but when I went to photograph them for this series a lot had been eaten by moths (even though I had a moth bait in the shelf!) Do any of you collect feathers and do you have a good way to stop them deteriorating? By the way I only think they were moth damaged because I remember Mum saying my little's brother's collection suffered that fate!
I seemed to also have acquire a lot of peacock feathers so they get there own photo.
The colours of feathers is one reason I love them so much!
And below is a red-tailed black cockatoo feather that Karla gave me for my birthday. I think he may too of suffered from the moth disease but as Karla said it looks like he's been in some wicked fight!
All my feathers I've found on the ground or others have found for me. Ben working out in the desert is a big help and Karla my old room mate is always gifting them to me too. The big red and blue macaw feathers were from my Grandma's friend's house, her son being a bird breeder :)
