Summary
"When we imagine birds, we think of them soaring through the sky, high above our heads - yet photographs of birds actually in the air are surprisingly rare. On Feathered Wings features the work of seven photographers who have spent their lives camping out, donning waders, and lying in wait for the best shots of birds doing what they do best: flying! Selected by fellow birder and photographer Richard Ettlinger, these images show hunters, migrators, waterfowl, and songbirds living on the wing: hunting, feeding, fighting, traveling, or just gliding along. An essay by Ettlinger gives an overview of the mechanics and evolution of bird flight, as well as insight into the art of capturing such extraordinary and exciting photographs."--BOOK JACKET
