Donald really loves photographing nature and that includes birds! This feathered focus requires a great deal of patience simply because birds are not willing models. They are often moving about so getting the “pose” right is difficult. Sudden movements on the part of the photographer will cause them to take flight. So careful stalking is required.
The reward is a stunning photograph as shown above with the feathered subject perfectly framed by branches and equally perfect lighting.
We never know the discomfit photographers go through just to get a great shot. Donald said that the image below was taken sitting on his butt with his hands braced on his knees. This raw untouched picture certainly captured the breeze ruffling the feathers of the bird!
