But I am very okay with accidental photos! There is
definitely an element of luck with wildlife photography,
and I not only accept that, I welcome it with joy.
This summer, there have been a pair of, or sometimes 3,
turkey vultures cruising the sky as I walk to the
community garden. I've seen them most weekends for
the past several months.
I never thought I'd be able to take
a picture of a bird in the sky... It's incredibly hard
to find a tiny black speck in all that blue or grey expanse!
But turkey vultures are big. And their flight pattern
is slow and fairly predictable. And when they fly close
enough... I have been able to get some photos!
And then there's that luck thing...
