Wildlife photography is far more difficult than you would imagine. Imagine lying half-submerged in water with mosquitos buzzing about you, or spending countless hours in the scorching heat, or spending a night in the woods in the dead of winter, all while being extremely quiet and motionless in order to gain the confidence of wild creatures and capture the ideal image. Not to mention the fact that you have to be really lucky if the animal appears at all. Patience, time, expertise, affection for the animal, and chance go into wildlife photography. And, with luck, you’ll be able to capture award-winning precisely timed photographs that are so fantastic that you’d miss them if you blink!
