02 Feb From Nothing to Something
From Nothing to Something
This morning went from nothing to something.
After an hour I had taken only 20 photos, most of which were test photos, experimenting with camera settings.
I’ll admit that I was beginning to feel discouraged. After visiting each of my hot spots, I had found no birds.
Then suddenly, a Bewick’s Wren landed on a nearby branch and began singing.
Click. (Thank you)
Then just as suddenly, it flew away.
This illustrates an important point in bird photography: There is always something.
We just need to keep going until we find it.
Or, as often happens, until it finds us.
We might call that being lucky.
Which brings us to an even more important point: We increase our chances of good luck finding us when we are working to find it.
Close up photos of birds are rare. See more photos of birds up close
Here’s an important book: The American Bird Conservancy Guide to Bird Conservation
Inspiring Respect for Nature, one bird at a time.
