The World’s Best Feather Duster

I am kicking off a week long bird theme today, with this shot of ostrich feathers. These feathers belong to a female red-necked ostrich, and believe it or not they are incredibly good at attracting dust – which is why it’s still common to sea ostrich-feather dusters for sale these days.

What did this image teach me?

That ostrich feathers aren’t like those of other birds, they don’t hook together and are quite loose – giving the ostrich a rather shaggy look.
