Duck and I sway...
Hot-on-the-heels of his photographic retrospective earlier this year, (03.12.2011 NEWS: JUSTIN DE VILLENEUVE EXHIBITION AT THE FTM) Justin de Villeneuve has a new exhibition entitled: PORTRAITS fashion to feathers, now on at the WWT London Wetland Centre.
The exhibition pairs images of models and rock stars with exotic birds and highlights some "striking similarities". In it, Justin compares his beautiful Bowie portrait with a duck...or to be completely fair, a red crested pochard. (Above right)
That's not Justin's duck snap above, though for nearly a decade now he has been photographing birds at WWT London Wetland Centre and more recently at Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory Trust as well as in other parts of Kent.

Personally, if I was comparing Ziggy-era Bowie to a bird it would have to be at least The Greater Bird-of-paradise, below, or perhaps even the pink monkey-bird...which is definitely lesser-spotted!
