Birds are a popular subject for photos. Sitting on wires or tree branches, snacking at a backyard feeder, protecting their nest, or in flight, they catch the eye of photographers. That said, photographing birds can also be challenging. If the birds are in flight, your shutter speed has to be fast enough to stop the motion so that the bird does not look like a flying blur. if the bird is up in a tree or on a wire, it also helps to have a lens that allows you to zoom in close so that you can capture the details of our feathered friends.
Try to photograph a bird today. If birds elude you, keep your chin up and see what else you can find up high - the branches of a tree, a squirrel or other critter up in a tree, an airplane, or the moon.
