Photographer James Henderson has made a series of close up images of bird feathers using a variety of macro and close up techniques. The feathers came from backyard, pet store, and museum specimens, and represent many different species and countries.

By looking this closely at the feathers, the viewer gains an appreciation for what they are and where they come from.
