Sometimes one can't get outdoors but still want to take pictures of animals and birds.

For instance, sometimes I can't move too well so I'm confined to a chair by
the window. I have my camera near me on a table, bird feeders about 10 feet from
the window, and a stump set up 3 feet from the window. Sometimes I will have the
camera on a tripod, with a remote cord, set up near the window, prefocused. When a
bird lands on the stump and I know it is in the prefocused spot, I start taking
pictures with the remote cord. Having a camera take can take 5 frames helps, because
sometimes one can get an unexpected good shot or get one out of 5 good shots. It is
not often that I can get 5 good shots in a row because the bird does move around and
end up with a shot with no bird in it, if he is so quick and flies off before the
shot is fired.
I don't think one has to be outdoors to get outdoor shots.

You can walk to the edge of the parking lot and look out but the dunes are really steep and we couldn’t see any trail to descend anymore. There was also a “Danger, Keep Off” sign at the end … Continue reading Le Count Hollow Beach In Wellfleet On Cape Cod
