'Birds Tangled Nets' by Todd R. Forsgren may not seem humane at first glace, but if you get past this, viewer's will be able to appreciate the beauty of these distressed subjects.

The series includes many different types of birds stuck in nets. Each bird has a poignant and terrified look on its face, and you can't help but want to reach into the photos and help.

Patrick James interprets these photos: "They immediately create expectations of all sorts of themes -- the inherent struggle between nature and civilization, the loss of ecosystems. But look a bit longer and you'll find something closer to intimacy."

This is definitely a touching series that will move viewers to feel a range of emotions.
