Birding Frustration

24 Jul

Where the Cormorant was
Wren posted a shot on her blog that reminded me of this commercial.  Oh, sure the commercial makes it SEEM like the photographer is fine with it all but we all know she’d be stomping back to her car thinking, “Why do I always miss the shot.  Dratted birds!”  [click]

    LOL – that is so true. We could create an entire issue of IATB with photos that could have been of great birds.

    Thanks for finding the commercial. I hadn’t had a chance to look for it.

    OMG. This is so true. I think we all have shots like these. Thanks for posting the commercial too. I hadn’t seen it.

    I love Wren’s idea of an entire issue of IATB of “almost great shots” — I could post a new one almost everyday!

    Don’t you hate it when that happens? I don’t have the lens for photographing birds, but that happens to me all the time when I try to photograph insects.

    Heh, the missed shot is the norm if you are digiscoping.
