Patience Can Be 90% Of The Battle

3 hours of waiting for an eagle.  Finally one pass.  But it was a good one!

  • Scout your locations (including sun angle and prevailing winds) to be sure that you're "patient" in the right location.
  • Make sure your settings are correct, check them periodically with test shots if the light changes. 
  • "Pre focus" on the spot you think the action will happen. 
  • Pay attention - don't get too distracted, the 10 seconds of action can happen when you least expect it

Stay in focus,
