CRUSH: Bird Studies

Today I am crushing on two gorgeous bird study illustrations from two different artists. The first is by artist Edward Julius Detmold circa 1917...

Catasetum and Cypripedium from 'News of spring and other nature studies' 1917

And the other is by Ernst Haeckel circa 1904...

Trochilidae from 'Kunstformen der Natur' 1904

Simply beautiful...
