Cee asks us for photos of things that appeal to our sense of touch in this week’s Fun Foto Challenge. When I took this photo of a Junco yesterday morning, the soft look of the feathers reminded me of how soft they actually feel. Once in awhile a bird flies into my windows and, when that happens, I rush out to rescue the bird before the cats can get it and I either put it some place safe or hold it until it recovers. The last one I held was a sweet little Junco like this one. Those fluffy feathers around their necks are so soft!
Also soft are leathery sage leaves,
Trouble’s wooly coat,
and the multi-directional waves on the back of Smarty’s neck and shoulders.
