Wood Duck and a Few Thoughts on Eye Level Shots (Three Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

You often see nature photographers flat on their stomachs or kneeling to take photographs because eye-level shots have their own drama. There is a third way of getting eye level shots with a long lens and that is backing yourself up so that only a slight bending of the knees brings the horizon up. Some animals will react,that is move away even if you back-up, so take a shot when you can and then change positions.

  1. Love that first one, really had to look to see which way round it is with that black ruffle of the feathers on the neck being so eye-shaped…..

  3. I’ve never seen their feet before – such interesting markings, like dappled light. I wonder what evolutionary advantage would have led to such a development? Always curious!
