If you're a nature lover, you'll love this bird watching photo series because of how up-close-and-personal the lens is to the stunning scenes. Capturing birds in the wild is no easy task, and to do it so eloquently and in such a way that makes it seem like a real-life moment in front of your eyes as opposed to a photograph is almost impossible. Except in the case of Minneapolis-based photographer Paula McCartney, who was able to get it just right.

Inspired by Victorian botany journals, Blossfeldt’s Art Forms in Nature and Audubon’s Birds of America, McCartney takes a scientific approach to her bird watching photo series.

"Bird watching combines varied natural settings with carefully placed craft store songbirds to crate an enhanced landscape. This work explores how nature and fabricated elements can combine to create a scene that questions what is natural," says McCartney .
