Like most people I like nature. I love to go for a walk in the woods or along the beach. Sometimes you get lucky; an animal or bird crosses your path, and you get a good photo. However, it is very seldom you get really get good shots, when you are on the move.
The birds and animals have certainly seen you coming, and they surely heard you!
So settle down, get comfortable, stop moving about, stay quiet and wait. It usually takes no longer than 15 minutes before the birds and animals start to appear.
