A single feather, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona

Midsummer morning—
under a feather red ants
shelter from the sun.
~~ ~~ ~~

Hapless bird loses one precious feather.

  1. I’m wondering if this ant planning on bringing this feather home… 🙂

      That’s always a possibility!

  2. How cool, sanctuary for red ants. I like the idea of a whole little universe going on out of sight. Cool.

  3. Oh, so judgmental! LOL! Definitely a circle of life kind of moment though with a bird losing it’s feather which becomes shelter for other creatures small.

  4. I am guessing it was meant to be.

  5. Awesome … this is a real beauty … the ants under the feather … the small beauty of nature

  6. Red ants aboveground too need escape from the desert heat. A fine gift of life from the now slightly plucked avian…

  7. I like how everything gets repurposed in nature.

  8. Love the idea of worlds within worlds. The feather almost looks like a cockatoo’s feather.

  9. I’d like to see the bird that shed this feather. Red ants- yikes!
