Experts said the silhouette was left by the bird's "powder down" - a substance protecting growing feathers."

Mass Moments: Polaroid Wins Patent Suit Against Kodak
The inspiration came on a family vacation in California. Land took a picture of a burro for his three-year old daughter, Jennifer. When the little girl impatiently asked, "Why can't I see it now?" she spurred her father's imagination. He went for a walk to think through the problem. Many years later he recalled, "As I walked around . . . I undertook the task of solving the puzzle [Jennifer] had set me. Within the hour, the camera, the film, and the physical chemistry became so clear to me that with a great sense of excitement I hurried over to the place where [a colleague] was staying, to describe to him in great detail a dry camera which would give a picture immediately after exposure."
