While visiting the zoo a few weeks ago, I spotted this beautiful bird with brightly colored, iridescent feathers. I immediately thought, "What great colors for a dye batch!" The photo above is the best picture I was able to take of it, which doesn't show that there is a little red on the bird as well.
Here is my attempt to capture the colors of the Nicobar Pigeon in thread.
In other news, I found out this morning that my red tatted necklace "Ruffled Orbit" was included in "Treasury West" on Etsy - (a tempory honor, so the link will only work for a while). Anyway, it's so nice to get recognition for one's work!
