Photographer's Note

Bird photography is one of the most popular genres of nature photography , especially wild bird photography can be quite challenging .
Recommended Settings To get the best exposures possible when shooting bird close-ups, you’ll need to consider that the subject could fly away in the blink of an eye. So you’ll want the shutter speed to be as fast as possible, that way you’ll be able to capture the bird even if it’s about to take flight, and have an acceptable image. However, with shutter speeds that fast, you need as much light as possible, which means as wide an aperture as possible. This works in your favor, because not only do you get the light you need, but the wide-open aperture dramatically reduces the depth-of-field, thus eliminating any distracting background objects.
