Two of the most basic rules in one article. Get as low down as possible and open the aperture as wide as possible. Always worth while looking into the animals eyes as far as possible

James – thank-you _so_ much for this article – I always _love_ anything to do with bird and wildlife photography. And while, of course, I _know_ this I have found one needs to be reminded time and time again – me particularly because I make the same silly mistakes over and over again. I came around a cornet once without watching where I was going and almost fell over a Purple Heron – the morning light was _beautiful_ and he would have made a _stunning_ photograph but I chased him away instead. A couple of days later I was there again and _ did exactly the same thing_! I don’t know if that Heron will ever go back there! Thanks again!

Thank you for sharing these tips. It’s always a good reminder , although as you stated, when it’s too busy just put the camera down and take in the moment.

By the way, what is the answer to yesterday’s leopard identification? You promised the answer today….😊

James,
Trevor gave me the aperture tip which helped me secure perhaps my most memorable image from one of our visits.

James, Thanks for the reminders! We would love to try a 600mm lens sometime! Looks so awesome, but you must need some type of stabilization right?
