Study other bird photographs What do you like about the bird photographs you see? Is it the lighting, the position of the bird in the frame, the background? Use the following guidelines as you consider the shots you'd like to take.
Backyard bird photography can be a challenge. It's not easy to photograph something small, flighty, and very aware of you. Here are a few tips to help you come away with a wild bird photo you can enjoy for years.

Make it your goal to study the patterns of your backyard wildlife and spend time outside with them. First, try using binoculars to study their patterns and habits. In time, you may be rewarded with many beautiful photo opportunities.
