Photographs of Birds That Will Make You Laugh

Ruurd Jelle van der Leij, a wildlife photographer from the Netherlands, has been captivating audiences with his project, Frontals, for the last ten years. This collection features birds photographed head-on, resulting in amusing and often hilarious images. “I immediately noticed how this perspective changed the birds’ appearance,” Ruurd explains. “I decided to focus on this approach and ensure each series had at least one frontal shot.” Some birds end up looking like angry cartoon characters, while others appear funny or even absurd.

According to Ruurd, frontal photographs can hide strong features like long bills, giving birds a different look. “Owls and birds of prey naturally look at you head-on, so their frontal views are only funny when they tilt their heads,” he says. “Spoonbills, however, look more charming when they show off their large bill with yellow patches and tufted head.” From a photographic standpoint, Ruurd believes frontal shots allow for unique compositions, making his work both entertaining and artistically distinctive.
