Birds have wings; they’re free; they can fly where they want when they want. They have the kind of mobility many people envy. – Roger Tory Peterson
I do not believe that the freedom of flight is the reason my primary focus as a biologist has been on birds. In fact, I really hate flying. Nevertheless, to watch a bird in flight gives me a sense of awe each time.
I spent some time at work today at a coastal marsh in Los Angeles County, because there wasn’t much else to do, working on photographing birds in flight. The results weren’t stellar, as the cloudy skies made things difficult because of shutter speed, but below is the best of the bunch. Enjoy.
