Waiting for a specific action to capture an animal through the viewfinder of a camera can make us miss the bigger picture of what is going on around you. While its true you need to stay focused when preparing to shoot, do not stay so focused that your entire adventure was only about capturing that one or handful of images. Take time to enjoy the entire experience not just that few seconds behind the lens. Often the most amazing things are missed by people that don’t take the time to just stop and look around.
Have a great day!
