Typically, I don't have the patience to wait for
a photo opportunity to present
itself to me.
So, last week, I decided to test out my patience
and see if I could obtain a photo with the birds that
I saw outside.
I swapped out the 50mm lens for the 70-300mm Canon lens
and pulled up a patio chair and waited.
And swatted a mosquito or two
After about 3 minutes, I took a few test shots
of the trees and their new spring leaves.
But those shots were boring.
So I waited some more.
Finally this bird lands on the fence.
Now, I'm still close enough to where he
can see me, so I move
s l o w l y
and take two photos before he
decides that he'd rather be hidden in a tree elsewhere.
I posted this photo, 'cause I like
how the 'bird march' was captured.
I really have to give the wildlife / bird photographers
credit for the patience they have....'cause after those
two photos, I headed inside.
I was done waiting.
