A Wing And A Prayer
Jason Edwards: "I’ve been on assignment where rare or endangered species inexplicably cooperate and I manage to capture a frame in very little time however this is far from the norm. The reality tends to be weeks, months or even years of searching, feeding hordes of bloodsucking insects, sleep deprivation and justification to editors as to the value of me sitting alone in the wild. In Bhutan my schedule was so tight I cringed reading the brief that listed two of the most elusive birds in the world. All I could do was work every minute of every day to track down the birds and offer prayers to all and any Gods. The fact that I was able to observe let alone photograph both species was both exciting and humbling."
