Of a feather









While working on my New York City calendar, I came across these almost-forgotten photographs I took at the Museum of Natural History. I thought they'd made a lovely little set. Photographing stuffed animals always feels like cheating, but they hold their own appeal and fascination for me.

Wow. These are stunners. So full of life and poetry, even if their last flight was long, long ago.

they have a special beauty -- i love natural history museums when you realize that it was the only way for most people in days gone by to ever experience distant worlds and fabulous creatures. these are lovely with the muted tones and texture and great focus.
