My very first feather..
Found while hiking with my dad on an unnamed mountain which the locals call Mt.Goritsa.

I saw something shiny from afar on the trail while walking and went closer to inspect it. To my surprise, it wasn't a man-made object, but a beautiful rainbow-colored feather.
It was a pretty windy day, but the feather was held firmly to the ground under a large rock that was on top of its shaft. It was almost as if someone had placed it there intentionally, but the only people that go up there are goat herders. I picked it up and snapped a picture because of its beautiful colors even though i had no idea what bird it was from, not realizing it'd be such a life-changing find which would give birth to a new hobby that would take up a huge chunk of my life.

Magpie feathers may be common but this one is special ~ i still have it up to this day :)

(My name is based on this ~ karakaxa means magpie in Greek)

Found this nicely preserved male under a large tree at a forested park. Its body was damaged so it’s possible that a cat got it, but there were lots of fly and beetle larvae crawling around it (they could have been the ones to cause this damage after the bird died) therefore it’s not possible to determine the cause of death. Feathers were cleaned before being presented. Can be used as reference material

Is it a fish? Is it a slug? Is it a fishy anemone? I do not have a clue what this is!

It is about 30mm long and there were a few of them in the sand - outgoing tide nearly on the turn. Most were buried and only the "fan fin" was showing.

Resting on the wet sand, when the sand collapsed it arched it's face upwards (2nd and third photos) and seem to spawn capsule from somewhere - there are 2 floating in the 4th pic.

Totally hypnotic, by the time my sister-in-law and I carried on the brother had walked 2kms away from us!
