The theme of this month’s background images is ‘Feathers’! The images showcased here are three highly colourful but yet very different views of the basic units of bird anatomy…
1. Birdworld, Kuranda National Park, Queensland, Australia. 2017. Pam is thrilled when a brightly coloured rainbow lorikeet chooses her shoulder to eat a grape.
2. A cropped image of the elaborate headdress of a participant in the Gay Parade of 2016 in New York. Below is one of the complete images.
3. The beautifully patterned colours in a feather of a male peacock.
