I prefer shooting (with camera) birds in the field. Still have alot to learn in photography.
I just enjoy taking photos that will be of better quality than the usual hand held cameras.
I try to do all the proper techniques and they still don't always work for me LOL
Taking photos of wildlife is a case of grabbing what pictures you can at times as they are not for sitting there posing for you. Not one for sitting in hides all day waiting patiently. Besides, it's too cold in Scotland to do that and too many midges biting the life out of you as well. :)
