Wildlife photography is one of my hobbies, which I am quite passionate about. I always enjoy doing wildlife photography and especially bird photography. Birds have so many interesting characteristics that fascinate me to the core. While capturing birds images, I mostly focus on the bird’s features, faces, emotions, actions, moods and activities.
When I fall short of recognizing any bird, I refer to my bird book. I compare the photographs I have taken with their research pictures illustrated in the bird book. This not only helps me to know the birds names, but also helps me to know more about their characteristics and behavior. When I get confused, I prefer to try any available alternatives, such as searching on the internet, posting questions at forums with birds photos, or consulting any senior bird-watcher/ bird photographer.
During my bird photography trips, mostly I wear dark camouflage dresses for getting nearer to the birds to take a close-up shot. While on a birding trip, I am careful and responsible enough to not disturb the birds. At a certain point of time, if I feel my approach could disturb the birds, I usually prefer not to take any photographs. As a principle, I always avoid capturing pictures of birds while they are nesting as it may make them vulnerable to their predators.
