Photographing animals in their natural habitat is both equally rewarding and frustrating. When you do get that great shot, all that patience paid off. Sometimes though, they won’t sit where you want them too, or even look at you.
In these times you grab the best shot you can rather than let the opportunity pass by completely.
This Rainbow Lorikeet shot I took a number of years ago at a local park. This was after about 30mins of slowly following it around waiting for it to settle in a good spot.
