Entry Description

For the Birds - The human eye has evolved to be quite sensitive to movement which aided basic needs of hunting and protection. If a bird flew by odds are good you would "see" it but we routinely miss birds perched in trees if they are not singing or moving. This series is a fun exercise in "seeing" birds in trees.
