Taking Briliant Photos of birds.

Birds have been one of the greatest subject for photographers for centuries because they have an inspiring beauty and mystify us with their gift of flight and diversity. When it comes to photographing birds and their behavior, capturing on film will add a huge visual impact and feeling to any picture. There are various places where birds gather, but really the best place where you may start to what is your backyard. The thing about birds is that they are busy little body and a bird feeder in the garden is a great place to take a photo when they are food or the bird in the air ready to jump one of the birds currently feeding.

When you venture outside your backyard to find birds to photograph your car may just become your newest piece of equipment. Birds see our cars less of a threat then a person with a long focal length under their arms. A vehicle is a big blind and, with that patience is a virtue. When you find a place as a prime feeding ground, a small park a ways from him and stop your engine to reduce noise to scare them in May.

Standard, wide angle and short zoom lenses can be used to shoot birds, but for serious bird photography, a quality of 500 mm or 600 mm telephoto lens is ideal.

Please keep in mind to avoid any situation that may focus on birds and their surroundings. If you notice a bird is showing all kinds of stress, this means that there is a nest or chicks nearby. Any photos must be taken more disconnected and you must leave the immediate area. As a photographer of birds or any wild animal, it is good to remember not to put ourselves or the birds around us in any danger.
