Bird Photography is one of the most popular genres of nature photography.
This should come as no surprise since birding is one of the world’s most popular pastimes!
Bird photography is also a very challenging endeavour, requiring specialised skills and equipment — one does not simply pick up the camera used for family vacation photos and capture compelling avian images. By the same yardstick, having the best possible photographic gear for the task does not ensure success either.
What is of utmost importance is that we have deep love and appreciation for our subjects, but pertinently, also a thorough understanding of avian behaviour and habitat. Patience here is a virtue.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better,” said Albert Einstein, the famous German-born theoretical physicist.
