What do you get when you visit a place that is very duck-friendly? Well, Chincoteague Island is such a place and that’s where this downy soft duck feather was located. Ducks could be seen, but they kept a bit of distance from people. Touching this feather is as close as I got to the real thing.

Canon EOS REBEL T1i, Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-55mm. 55mm macro.
Location: Chincoteague Island, VA (USA).
