We spend much of our life waiting. The Green Heron is waiting for an afternoon snack to swim, or fly, by. I was waiting for a Green Heron to alight on the log and pose for a photo. The secret of bird photography is to walk with a camera into the vicinity of birds and wait. All the photography I know anything about comes down to getting there and waiting. And when the door opens, walk through. We all are waiting for some door to open. Some of us have cameras. All of us are waiting. You would think that we would be better at it by now.
