A bit o' Bosch: St. Jerome in Prayer

Bosch is a longtime favorite artist of mine, and I thought it might be fun this year to take a little break from Screen Cap Spam for Lent and instead look at his paintings of saints. I'm starting off with St. Jerome in Prayer because I like all the other paintings better--this one is very dark in comparison, and lacks the whimsical details that make his work so charming (and disturbing). However, I do quite like the background landscape, and the weird tree with the bird nest in it.
