Like James Audubon before him, Paul Nelson enjoys capturing a large variety of birds in their natural habitat. Wild Birds Flying is a series he shot using a portable, high-speed camera rig prepared specially for this job. #PaulNelson#flying#sparrow#wildbirdsflying#birds
Is this not a gorgeous bird?! Two weeks ago I was finally in the right place at the right time to capture this Indigo Bunting as it launched. Missing a couple opportunities over the past years I was quite happy to see this one in focus and all! #worldenvironmentday
Aim your eyes high when looking for Baltimore Orioles. They’re most often seen perched at the tops of trees or flitting through the upper foliage in search of insects. This guy was low because it was cold last weekend so he got himself a new bracelet ! 💍
Spring migration is on. Check out this adorably small bird! She's a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, only about 4" tall. I caught a glimpse as she was passing through Minnesota on her way to breeding grounds in Canada and Alaska
Image by @paulnelson_photo@wildbirdsflying 'I love birds and gadgets. Paul has been combining nature and technology for years to capture fleeting moments of birds in flight. I know how DOF (Depth of Field) works but the detail he manages to capture has me staring at each image he releases for hours on end trying to figure it all out and then the birds themselves in the moment of flight, inspiring stuff.' - @kc80
