a good thing to do if you come across a wild animal is to not find it intimidating, insted think of it as a friend and welcome it's company, because they can sense the fear in you. however if they sense you are not hostile with time and practice you will be able to accomplish amazing shots like you will not believe.
yes indeed, very true!
i learnt photography using a 1980's film SLR with manual focus, so i have a sharp eye when it comes to the whole manual focusing thing. which is one of the things i'll thank my dad for, at some point. actually i can't remember whether it was him who taught me it or me teaching myself... :shrugs: anyway yeah...
thank you. Theese owls came down from up north, they were even spotted in downtown Ottawa (a city of roughly 1million people) but its rare they come that far south. They had to leave because of all the bird watchers, they must eat a ridiculous amount of mce everyday to survive and all the birdwatchers scared their mice away. Kind of explinswhy they ussually only live in remote areas.
thank you. that is what i love about getting close to animals is interacting with them yu never know how they will react. One of the coolest experiences I had ata zoo was with a baboon it looked like Rafiki from the lion king all colorful. I put my hand up to the glass and he put his hand up on the other side it was really cool. I got a little girl to do the same thing and tried to take a pic but it was so dark in there it didnt turn out too well.
