Patience Pays

Most wild creatures get accustomed to humans if they are around them enough, and birds are no exception. At the house we use at Foxton, located on the Manawatu River estuary, I recently spent the morning sitting at the front door watching a white-faced heron feeding nearby. After some considerable time the bird judged I was no threat and began feeding close to me, frequently in the 'frozen motion', neck coiled, ready to strike at its prey. Bird photographers need patience and lots of time, and good results will surely follow - I've proved it many times. <a href="">A47I8764s </a>
