French photographer Audrey Corregan's 'Obviously' series is a very different sort of bird photography. Rather than capture a particular species of bird in its natural habitat, as many photographers do, Corregan has photographed the backsides of stuffed birds. It's a curious study into how we appreciate avian beauty and an unusual glimpse at a number of different types of bird plumage.

Implications - Photographers continually aim to push boundaries with their works; this photographer took an unusual twist on nature photography by capturing birds' backsides. Since most photographers focus on the profile or front end of wildlife, this set raised eyebrows and got viewers talking. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by taking an unexpected route while creating products and marketing materials.
