His wikipedia page mentions that he's ”perhaps best known for his birdseye views” -- and that may be true -- but I'm here to tell you that most of his birdseyes can't hold a candle to some of the other men on this site (none of whom have a Wikipedia page written about them yet, by the way). Yes indeed, Most of Bachmann's birdseyes were amateurish. This one, however, is not. It's pretty gorgeous.
