Artist Hans Waanders

I recently saw a "map of the world" shaped by the various names that people all over attach to the kingfisher. It's wonderful!

It turns out, the creator of this map seems to have been obsessed by kingfishers—an obsession I can relate to, because for sure, kingfishers are my favorite bird. (Though he seemed to like water too.)

I thought I'd share a few other images by this Dutch artist, Hans Waanders, who died in 2001, at age sixty. I guess you could call him an "obsessive," but . . . what's wrong with that?
