  1. Please keep in mind, it is federally illegal for anyone to pick up, posses bird of prey feathers. Leave them on the ground…..

  2. Is it possible for me to get your permission to paint “feather #5”? I am an artist and love the texture and flow of the feathers. I can see using soft pastels or oils to capture it as what people would think of as abstract, but would actually be realism! I have a show coming up in October of this year and would love to see those feathers as part of it! Please let me know either way. If the answer is yes, I will email a copy of the finished work to you.
    My thanks,

    • Sorry for the delay, I had to check with several people. OPRD photographs are not copyrighted. We just ask that you don’t pass our photos off as your own. If you want to paint the photo, please feel free to do so. We’d love to see it when you are done! Thank you for asking. Erin
