A Illegal Find. Many people pick up feathers. Many feathers are illegal for everyone in the USA to own. So now I try and just take there photo.

whats the best pic you've ever taken?

Hello Tmrhabitat,
I can not say. What I feel is a "best pic" is not what others may feel is a best pic. Choosing photographs I take is very hard, I have no clue what the public is going to like??
Thank you so much tmrhabitat, great question!!
