Even though I do not want to accept the fact that I need to be in a certain proximity to the bird and have the right light to get that good picture, I am beginning to see the light. This is especially so when taking pictures with my CANONEO7D of the tiny migrating birds that are around now. They are usually really far away, in dark parts of the park and moving all the time. But if I wait in a spot that has the right factors in a place the bird has a chance to appear, I can perhaps get a decent shot.
The picture of this Scarlet Tanager is not really an example of the patience I have yet to develop, but I could not resist this beautiful bird. It was pretty close – and I mainly used my flash to capture the image.
