The 435 plates of the "Birds of America" double-elephant portfolio are unprecedented and unsurpassed among ornithological publications, each print capturing the character of its subject—as well as the bird’s natural habitat—with great fidelity while imbuing it with vitality and the distinctive personality of the species. Audubon’s typical depiction of males and females, dorsal and ventral views as well as profiles, and Havell’s delicately nuanced tones and colors are nowhere seen to better effect than in the "Black-Bellied Darter" (Plotus Anhinga), better known as the Snake-bird.
