Wildlife Photography Tip Number 6....You Need Lot's Of Patience
Tip #6) You Need Lot's Of Patience....If you want to be successful in wildlife photography, you will need to learn to have some patience, if you are an impatient person, because you might have to wait around for some great wildlife action.
Wildlife doesn't care if you get a great photo, they are on their own schedule and will do what they want when they want to do it, so you might have to wait, and wait, and wait some more to get a good photo. You might have to wait patiently for a couple seconds, if you are lucky, but many times you will be waiting for many minutes, and possibly hours, for some wildlife to come around or for some good wildlife action to happen.

If you remain patient and wait for some special wildlife action or some exotic wild animal to come around, then you will have a chance to capture something special. While you are waiting patiently, you have to remember to stay alert and don't daydream, or if something great does happen, then you will probably miss it anyway, and all your waiting around, will just be a waste of time.
While you are waiting around patiently for some great wildlife photography to happen, you could be checking all your camera settings, making sure the shutter speed is fast enough to stop the action and reduce blur. Or you could be cleaning your lens, since lot's of people are too busy to clean their lenses during their normal daily routines. You could also look for a better shooting angle or vantage point, to have the least amount of obstructions to get in the way of your wildlife photography.
So just remember to stay patient, remain quiet so you don't scare away and wildlife, and hopefully you will be rewarded with some great wildlife photography.
