Some birds are arguably more dramatic than others, especially when stuffed and with proper bokeh embellishment. I can't help but recall that famous quote by Friedrich Nietzsche: "... and if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." It was one of those rare occasions when I used the built-in flash to create my awesomeness. I have no idea what kind of bird it is (feel free to enlighten me), but it's exhibited in the Museum of Natural History in Stockholm.
