Dealing With Wildlife Photography


Spend time studying the species and habitat you’re shooting.

Especially Kids, they Move Around a Lot!

Try to visualize the shot or type of shot you want to get.

Then observe your prey carefully within it’s natural environment.

When the time is right… fire!

If you miss, pretend to your quarry that you got the shot you wanted and lull them back into a false sense of security.

Begin the stalking again.

  1. These subjects can sometimes be elusive. Be prepared to crawl under things.
    Also, be careful what kind of snacks you carry, as they are attracted to treats.


  2. I love your advice. I wish I had the patience to follow it. I’m 66 years old and I still can’t sit still–spent most of my grade school years in the hall because I couldn’t sit still. In today’s world I would probably be on Ritalin. I do try. I will go to the lake and sit on a bench where I can hear the birds, but I can’t stay there long enough for them to show themselves. I always have my camera with me, and I get lucky with some shots occasionally, but I think I need to get sol old that I can’t move!

  3. Love it! But what, if they attack? One time they spotted me with a Great Dane stalking them. They attacked! The poor giant dog was so afraid, he tried to hide behind my apron. …:)
