#22. "RE: question about birds"
In response to In response to 21



Darlene,

You really need to work on your posing technique. You should have the Bald get onto another limb where there are no branches blocking the view. Use the spider technique, you know, come on over here to this limb where your real beauty will be shown to the whole world, where your foxy feathers aren't masked by those ugly ole twigs. Kind of like Howitt's poem.

Then there is Moose Peterson's technique where he makes a place to perch very attractive to the subject (perhaps pieces of salmon?), and knocks off (Do not cut off) all the obscuring branches. Then once again, as others have recommended, patience & practice.

In my Bald photo, I had to move quite a bit to get a clearer shot. It appears if you had moved a slight bit to the right, you might have gotten the limbs to be a better frame for the head.
