When I first saw this magnificent photograph by Stasja Voluti last year online, and before I was aware of the name she had given it, my immediate response was, Beethoven. But Puccini, I think, is more accurate, as these birds, so gracefully assembled, look like they might well be listening to Che gelida manina from La bohème. Besides, Beethoven’s notation was nowhere near this elegant.

Such a lovely gift. Thank you, Stasja, for this tangible evidence of your vision, and of the heart that guides it. It is an honor to be counted among your friends.
