Dartford Warbler Robert Brown

Patience, fieldcraft and the right equipment go a long way in getting you shots like this. Today’s cameras will take many frames per second but good timing, even anticipating the action, is still paramount. Of course nature provides us with many beautiful subjects, not all as small, lively, rare and wary as the Dartford Warbler pictured here by Robert Brown, but you can start without specialist equipment if you choose the right subject. If you get into this particular type of photography then at a club you will find people who can help you on your way.
