Bird photography is a highly popular subject in photography. Birds are quite majestic creatures, and their ability to fly has been the subject of our envy for generations, culminating in our development of flight and aerospace engineering. Even since ancient times, the ability to fly was revered among the population, and in the famous Greek myth, Icarus and his father attempt to escape from an island palace, so his father builds wings out of wax and feathers. Icarus’ father warned him not to fly too close to the sun, but as Icarus soared higher, he ignored these instructions, and the way melted, leading to Icarus’ death. Aside from mythology, even today, birds are an essential part of the dynamic ecosystems of our world, and they often grace our backyards with their majesty.
In this post, you’ll find 30 majestic bird photos, captured by some of the top photographers in the world. From calm lakes to ocean shores, peaks and valleys, photographers sought out some of the most unique and beautiful birds in the world to capture these bird photographs.
