So, this week I have been pursuing close-in, tack-sharp images to build my skills. Not always easy with skittish wildlife, but some of the creatures of the marsh have patiently waited for clumsy me, and rewarded me with some decent images.
Yesterday I managed to click the shutter just as a Great Blue Heron was about to toss back the fish that was in its mouth. Part skill, mostly luck. What it teaches me is that not every day will be a good day, and some of them will be stinko. But most of them will surprise me with something beautiful if I just wait long enough.
The Italian word for patience is "Pazienza." Ponder it.
