No Wonder Audobon Shot 'Em

The thing about trying to photograph wildlife is that, mostly, they won't sit still. And many of the times when I'm trying to get shots of birds, I'm in a canoe which also won't sit still. Recently, on the St. Johns River, I was trying to get a photograph of a young Green heron. Finally, I got a halfway decent shot. But generally I missed getting good pictures of birds more often than I got a good hit.

First try...not good.

Damn! We drifted!

Crap! Boat moved!

Darn! Didn't get the color patterns!

This will have to do.
