"Richard Ettlinger's photos are superb. As a wildlife host and filmmaker myself, I
know just how difficult it is catching birds in flight even with a movie camera.
Richard captures the majesty, power, grace and speed of many species from barn
swallows to peregrine falcons. Every time you look at one of his pictures you see
something new and wondrous, a curling feather, flexing wingtip or a highlight in the
eye. With consummate skill he achieves pin-sharp images of bodies hurtling through
the air at 30, sometimes 70 mph! Richard has a unique talent and I adore watching
him in action."

Photographer Richard Ettlinger is being featured by the American Museum of Natural History and Harry N. Abrams Books for his six-year project photographing the beauty of birds in flight. AMNH will display over 30 images in a photo exhibition running through May, 2009.
   These startlingly close-up photographs of birds in flight offer a visual comparison and contrast; while each species exhibits unique behaviors, there is a commonality in their movements. Among the highlights are Ettlinger's images of a female barn swallow feeding her young in midair, a cormorant flying away with a newly caught fish, and a pink roseate spoonbill gliding through the air.
