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.

    Fantastic shot William!! This is just perfect, the outstretched wings, and the stretched out claws/legs/feet and the POV, perfect! ::)) Adds a whole new concept when you now that it is an alligator in the background…. do not land!! :))

    Excellent, I like the blurred one in the distance, giving balance to the one in the foreground, and this one seems to be just showing off his flying skills (‘look how easy it is FOR ME’ :-)) Great capture
