Getting Better With Birds!

Alright, so like the title of this post says, I slowly started improving in bird photography. But before that you've gotta know that for every fair shot of a bird I got, I got about 20 failed shots. Well, failure is the stepping stone to success! So here's a White Throated Kingfisher, that I managed to shoot in my backyard. I find these birds more common in Singapore than here in India.


I spotted this tiny, skinny little bird in my neighbour's yard. I don't know exactly what bird it is, although I suspect its a species of flower pecker.


And the last and best shot I got was of this Greater Racket-Tailed Drongo, a very common species here. I used to be awaken by the calls and cries of this bird, together with its relatives, other species of drongos.

Well that is where I'm at with most of my photography - 1 or 2 great ones for the 50 bad ones :) Keep at it, you're doing great! :)

Adrielle, same here! You get like 50+ times more bad shots for every good one.
