Wild birds are popular subjects of nature photography. In fact, many photographers claim that birds are the most rewarding to photograph. They come in all colors and sizes and can be seen almost anywhere- from your own backyard to the deepest forests. Despite the fact that there are thousands of species, they are still the trickiest subjects of photography. Birds rarely stay still; they like to hop, fly, and hide- even more so the ones in the wild.
Owning the most advanced and expensive optics could help in anticipating a good wild bird photo. However, there are two things that are more essential than your gear: a basic understanding of wildlife behavior and absolute patience. Birds in their natural habitat are unpredictable and getting a perfect shot is almost impossible, but don’t let this difficulty frustrate you. Capturing the most wonderful photos doesn’t always come easy but those still memories will definitely compensate for all the hard work.
