Art Description

Photography: Black & White and Color on Paper.

What does one do when nature offers up one of its own?

This poor bird broke its neck with a thud against my window. In death this tragic result of not being able to differentiate reflection from reality was sad yet beautiful at the same time. Song birds represent fragility of our natural world. They are often the victims of cats, cars, windows and larger birds. In some countries people actually catch and eat these tiny birds by the dozens in a single sitting.

I saw this death as an opportunity to capture some of the fading beauty. This image takes a single black and white capture of the bird, mirrors it, not unlike the mirror effect that lead to its demise. Fine art photography by Edward M. Fielding
