Intricate Patterns in Feathers Photographed by Robert Clark

For a series on the long and curious evolution of feathers, New York-based photographer Robert Clark visited several institutes of zoology and paleontology and museums of natural history located from Germany to China. The resulting photographs range from simple, elegant portraits of single feathers to snapshots of ancient fossils which document the past lives of some toothier ancestors of modern birds.
