The one that flew away. Why do birds wait until you set your exposure, focus, and then fly before you get the photo?

  1. I could fill a gallery with shots like this. For all my good ones, there are at least a dozen where the bird refuses to cooperate at just the last moment – just as the shutter is clicked. I’m guessing that people who don’t do this kind of photography don’t understand the patience that is required for the shots you are trying to get.

    • Thank you Charles! It is very difficult to get birds to cooperate. Even if you know the nest sight. I was watching a peregrine falcon nest an was unable to get a good shot. I caught him flat and level. It was like photographing the edge of a razor blade.
