Snagged feather blowing
Another thing I found on July 20 when I wandered along the east bank of Waller Creek adjacent to Chesterfield Ave. in north-central Austin was a small feather that had gotten snagged on a drying stalk and was blowing in the breeze. It takes only a wee bit of wind to make a feather do a lot of moving, so I raised the shutter speed on my camera to 1/500 of a second to try to stop most of the motion. Many of my attempts failed, but this one came out reasonably well.
