Having difficulty identifying a particular species of bird through her spotting scope, Carol E. Richards took a photograph through the lens to assist with her research. The resulting picture turned out to be far more than a tool for verification. It had a mood and visual content the artist was drawn to, and led to the creation of a series of beautiful, dream-like vignettes. “Unlike some photographs of wildlife that are clear and provide answers,” says Richards, “these soft visuals raise questions. It was a surprising discovery; as I spied on these birds, I could see their charm and individuality. Who knew?”
