Just Hanging Around . . . Waiting for a Chance to Split
Sometimes you just never know what the lens of your camera will find - so take it as it comes!
I've seen others create images with this pose - and have actively tried to get my own for the past several years with no success. While chasing a Wood Duck recently (also with no success) - this little fellow decided to pose right in front of me for a few seconds.
- First lesson learned: All the shots you're looking for will come your way . . . but it will be in nature's time, not necessarily yours.
- Second lesson learned: That shot may come your way and only stay for a moment - so be prepared. Understand your equipment, settings and exposure requirements intimately so you can switch on the fly - and take advantage of the beauty nature has chosen to place in front of you.
Stay in focus,
