Quiet, wait, watch - missed! The patience element in photographyI love taking photos, not just on trips but also randomly when walking around. A cloud formation in the sky, a cute toy, an unusual pattern on a balcony, etc. There are times when I pause to capture on my phone a playful squirrel or a tiny bird. At such times, when what we want to photograph is in movement, we require a lot of patience. Not only you need to stand very still so as not to disturb the subject, but also be able to get that one photo which one really wanted. For example, not the squirrel on the tree limb, but a closeup of the squirrel munching something, with the bushy tail prominent as well.
Then there are butterflies- really tough to get a snap! They are constantly flitting around and invariably when sitting for a moment on a flower, your camera is not ready for it. Have you had some frustrating wait and watch but missed moments in photography?
