I don't normally set up in position like many avid nature photographers.
I prefer to wander slowly down a trail or a boardwalk, camera in hand like an infantryman on patrol. I am routinely passed by, even by little old ladies in zimmer frames. But I am not in a race and so I don't mind.
I study reflections. And I examine shadows, and strange lights.
It isn't all about creatures and scenery ... sometimes it can be the way you look at something, rather than the thing itself. That is one of what I would consider my strengths. It's my eye. Less skill and more eye, could possibly be my motto!
I make every effort to remain passive in my shoots
I go out of my way to try not to break a web or step on a plant or flash on a creature. If I can shoot things without having disturbed them in any way, then I have reached my objective.
