A photographer with wings?

Pale Male approaching nest
Photo by Lincoln Karim - 3/18/06

On seeing this photo on Lincoln's website this morning [It's more beautiful blown up, but won't fit that way here] my first thought was: Great Scott, does the guy have wings? How did he get this stunning photo of Pale Male from above? Then I remembered glancing up yesterday and seeing Lincoln and Frederic Lilien out on the terrace of an apartment just below the top floor of Woody's building. There's always a more logical answer. Still I enjoyed my brief fantasy of the photographer sailing about somewhere above 927 Fifth Ave, flapping occasionally and getting perfect shots of his hero Pale Male.
