Default Natural History Museum (Tring)

The Natural History Museum in Tring is a Victorian museum hosting the collection of Lionel Walter Rothschild. The guy was fanatical - even his pets have made it into the collection.

It's quite challenging to shoot because of the strong but strange lighting and all the reflections. Close-ups work OK if you put the lens right on the glass but it was impossible to shoot the larger specimens that way.

First, some of the birds:

Great picks. It's difficult to shoot through windows and you did it pretty well.

All are very nice but I like #6 the best. It's almost like looking at the actual display case itself.
