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. The Minneapolis advertising photographer captures an intimacy to the wild birds which lets the viewer get so close, it feels as if we can almost touch the sleek feathers.
