There are different techniques in wildlife photography meant for specific creatures. No experienced wildlife photographer shall click the image of an elephant with the same kind of lens and approach as a snake. In this section, we shall discuss how to shoot birds in flight, which might seem like an easy subject but is actually hard to capture. You might have tried numerous times to get the perfect shot but you have to follow some careful steps in order to turn out frame-worthy pictures.

It is necessary to follow separate methods to capture fast flying birds. In case of the latter category, you shall find they slow flying birds are much easier to photograph rather than fast flying birds. Moreover, your task becomes easier since slow flying birds are usually larger. You can achieve the perfect shot if you start practicing camera panning. It is necessary for you to learn how to move your camera along with the movement of the subject.
