This Wildlife Photographer will Show You How Birds Look Weird from the Front

Perspective or is one of the most important things in photography. A slight turn in the camera angle will give you a completely different image than you would expect. Ruurd Jelle van der Leij is a Netherland photographer who has an entirely different art of photography and it is an excellent example of what is said before. Typically, we are used to seeing the photographs of our feathered friends from their three-quarter view that highlights their glorious beaks, which is the most significant feature of the birds. 

But this photographer is clever enough to catch their front view, which gives a hilarious look to birds while giving a laugh to anyone. What happens here is from the front view of birds, it looks like their beak become shortened while fading the elegant look they had with long sharp beaks.
