In my opinion, good observation is one of the best skills a photographer can develop, especially in the unpredictable world of wildlife photography.
Take this unusual capture of a female Purple Finch for example…you simply can NOT plan for shots like this!
Now in this case, having a large lens already set up helped, but even so, when my radar goes off, I know time is of the essence and I must manuever quickly in order to be successful.
Four clicks was all I got and ONE was all I needed! 🙂
