Photographs of a Guineafowl feather. Guineafowls are native to Africa. At some point in time a domesticated version of the Helmeted Guineafowl was introduced to the West Indies, which is where I found this feather.
The species are considered monogamous, though occasional bigamy occur. They are social critters, living in small groups, and they are said to have a delicate flavour. Photography Anette Hermann.


  1. Anette, I’ve always enjoyed feathers – their texture, weight (or lack there of) and colors but this series of photos is sublime. You’re exploration of a simple feather highlights their complexity in a very soft and romantic aesthetic

  2. Beautiful work, Anette! Whisper-y images. : )

    Just WONDERFUL! I want to make a hat. I have not seen you here in a long time.

  6. These are fabulous Anette!
