Note: Besides the lone bird flying overhead, there are an additional 23 images of life-size birds embedded within the portrait.  The images were taken from a reproduction of a 19th century French ornithologist guide to larks.  Further, the collective noun — think “a murder of crows,” or “a gaggle of geese” — for a group of larks is an exaltation.  Larks, best known for their song, are one of the few avian species that have the ability to sing even when they fly.
