Luncheon feathers

arthrodod-like feather, with dew
Is it a shrimp, or some other sea creature, or...?

I found another luncheon stump the other day, where Something had made a meal of Something Feathered.  This time I took closeups of the feathers—it was a dewy, dewy day, and the wee droplets sparkled. This one doesn’t even really look like a feather, but some exotic creature with an extremely complex exoskeleton and a lot of antennae. Or legs. With arthropods it can be hard to tell.

There were a lot of very downy feathers…

grey feathers and one brown one

…mostly grey, but some brownish…

And all lovely, whether rigid or downy.
