Caption: Hen's feather under a dissecting microscope. Feathers, composed of the protein keratin, cover the bodies of birds and provide heat insulation and streamlined shape. A feather consists of the quill (embedded in the skin) and the shaft (rachis) of the feather (running diagonally in this image), which carries the ''barbs''.
