The Art of Staying Aloft – Pictures of Flying Birds by Gloria Wilson

Gloria Wilson is a photographer from Ann Arbor, Michigan, who likes to focus on expression, gesture and movement. She began concentrating on birds in particular when her four children moved away and she no longer had ‘moving props’ at home to practice on. Photographing birds can be a challenge, but the fun of hiking outside and the satisfaction of finally getting a great picture make all the effort worthwhile.
