Cee`s Fun Foto Challenge: Feathers

IMGP7055

It’s been awhile since I entered a photo in Cee`s Fun Foto Challenge (or any challenge for that matter). When the topic of Feathers came up, the first image I thought of was this one of a feather lying on the ground, taken a few years ago. It was a good opportunity to get down low & in close with the 55 mm Macro on the Pentax K30, something that you can’t do when the feather is still attached to the bird!

    • Thanks Mick, not sure of the species, could be from a Mopoke (Tawny Frogmouth Owl). Thanks for the follow, interesting blog you have as well, look forward to your posts. Cheers, Doug.

  2. Here you go:

    Tawny frogmouth
    Podargus strigoides (Latham, 1801)
    The tawny frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) is a species of frogmouth native to Australia that is found throughout the Australian mainland and Tasmania. Tawny frogmouths are big-headed stocky birds often mistaken for owls due to their nocturnal habits and similar colouring. The tawny frogmouth is sometimes incorrectly referred to as “mopoke”, a common name for the southern boobook whose call is often confused for the tawny frogmouth’s.

    • Always thought they were a type of Owl, learn something new every day!. Thanks for that Mick, have always called them a Mopoke around here & a few other choice words when they are calling out in the middle of the night, they are quite loud!

      • I’m laughing as I type, yeah, I can relate to that. As a kids my parents took on a camping holiday in Holland, early hours of the morning we were woken by, well we didn’t what it was a the time. Whatever it was, it was on top of our tent screaming its head off, we seriously thought we were going to de. I forgot to mention that we were alone in the tent, parents in the caravan. Anyway they thought we were being murdered, for they had heard the screams too. As was it turned out to be a peacock, for that is what our parents were shouting at us as they burst into the tent. I still laugh about it, but at the time we were terrified.
