Award Shortlist   


By ZInaNMooner
This picture was taken yesterday after a couple of hours without a sign of a bird close enough to shot but as I was preparing to live, this little one called me and gave me enough time to sit, prepare the camera and shot, after a couple of clicks he was gone. I didn't take any other pictures during the afternoon except these last ones and it was great.
It can be frustrating waiting without nothing happening and most of the times, I tend to change place, but I realize that by being patience and just wait it's the best thing one can do, eventually the opportunity will come and the results can be great.
