I really love the fact that you can travel and visit natural history museums all over the world and no two museums will display there treasures in exactly the same manner. As a child growing up in Ottawa and spending every so many sundays exploring the museum of nature, I never thought any other museum on earth would hold as much fascination for me. Then there was the museum in London, England and Vienna, Austria that I absolutely adored. I must say there was something quite special and unique about the Harvard Museum of Natural History. They have an amazing assortment of specimens in a fairly small display area and they are arranged in very beautiful ways.
The bird displays were a good example of this. They appeared very scientific and yet artful. Vintage and yet holding great modern appeal, since there is a resurgence of collections and their displaying happening. Forgive me if you wanted to see detailed pictures of birds. What I really wanted to photograph was the overall appearance and design.
How do you like the village weaver and the rufous rockjumper birds:)
