Distraction: Ornithologie

Maybe it was the feathered hat I was blabbering about a few posts ago or, perhaps, it was the carved eagle lectern that I'm hoping Santa stashes under my tree come December.... whatever the reason lately I've been fixating on early illustrations of birds like these wonders by Francoise Nicolas Martinet from the late 1700's.  I would love a wall covered with these exquisite images.... lined up one after the other in a neat grid... a floor to ceiling flight of fancy.  See more here.
