The Fernbird

Recently I visited the Auckland Museum and wandered
through some parts of it, on the hunt.

I managed a few snaps but this was the only one that I wanted
to keep, for further study, if that is not
too strong a word.

It is the composition that draws me. The triangulation
of the rushes. I want to live with this picture for a while.

The diorama is really featuring the Fernbird (I’m fairly sure
that’s what it is) but for me, while the Fernbird is part of the composition,
the subject lies elsewhere.
