It took me nearly more than a dozen times in practicing to shoot birds in flight to get the right picture, Well for this picture I waited patiently till I got the best contrasting background, I took this shot at day time when the light was more and where I was able to use more of shutter speed to freeze the motion as desired. Well bird photography is the most challenging for many wildlife photographers, especially when they are in flight. The main problem photographing birds in flight is that they’re moving and flapping the wings so fast which can be a concern for many and as for beginers, but if one can get the correct shutter speed, background, and the direction of the sun, you could get more better picture than mine, But as in my case I was bit lucky as this Egret was moving towards the direction of the
sun which was an added plus point for me and all I can say is......Lucky Me.
