When I saw the contest here on dpreview I immediatelly thought of some coloured feathers we had at home since one of the last childrens birthdays. I bought a Sigma ringflash and the nice Sigma 105 mm macro lens - both used on ebay - and the spring let us wait this year - so why not take some photographs of feathers until the flowers and the insects come out.
