Feather Flowers

I was practicing my feather stick making earlier this afternoon and although i didn't start out with this in mind, it soon became a personal challenge to finish it, when it became apparent i was going to get a good feather stick out of it.

I dread to think how many curls there are in this, the feather flower is made from a single piece of seasoned Hazel, the stick started off with a diameter of approx half an inch, and the feathered section stands at a good six inches tall, I'm going to try and make some more as soon as i get up the woods and gather some more dead standing Hazel rods.

I think just one of these would be good enough to start a fire up the woods, although in reality it would be a shame to burn something that looks like this.
