Friday Fixation: Todd Forsgren

I'm sure I've mentioned 20x200 before. Its a great art site that features different artists for affordable prices (if you act quickly.) The one the showed up in my email on Thursday really caught my attention. Todd Forsgren has a similar background to my father - biology and art - which is why the images of these birds caught in mist nets caught my eye.

I didn't even need to read the blurb about how these birds aren't hurt and they are just caught to be banded and then released - because I've done it myself... well, not the banding - but definitely the releasing part. Bird banding with my dad was one of my favorite things as a kid and I'd still like to do it (although my dad does it a lot less.)

With father's day right around the corner, I was a bit disappointed that none of the $24 prints were left - and I've been scouring the internet ever since to find a print more affordable than $2400. Forsgren's entire ornithological series is on his website - if you are interested in checking out the other birds photographed.
