I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.

    My gosh, this poor guy looks like he is in tatters!

  • Hello Al,
    Actually it’s the low pressure air going over the top of the wings… sucking the feathers up as the bird pulls up as well…it’s a pilot thing :-)
