Oh, that was easy. Now that you explained it.

How do you guys photograph the birds? Do you use camouflage? Do you use hideouts or portable covers. Im surprised at how close I get to birds sometimes. It took me eight months to get close enough to the egrets I finally got photos of, I would go down where they are at least once a week and just sit around, never got very close without scaring them off, only this week they finally got bored with me. The honey eaters Ive got to within 5 feet, same with the tiny silver eyes I think the closest Ive got is about 4 feet before they take off. Some of my Photographer friends at my photo club are amazed. They are calling me Bird lady now:-)and want me banned from wildlife competition for having an unfair advantage.
