Audubon vs Reality

My photograph with Cedar Waxwings. Photo was taken on 11/30/23 at the Los Angeles Arboretum in Arcadia, California. Johnny LeeWong

I have never been much of a fan of Audubon’s paintings. They look too contoured and forced to me. They approach the uncanny valley.

The photo above, however, looks more like an Audubon than some Audubon’s, including his painting of waxwings. A great image.
