Difficult, yep, but the hardest, I dunno. Landscapes seem more difficult to me and I don't really try them much. I mean it has all been shot, so how do you get a "new" image. With birds, the unexpected almost always happens, that is part of the attraction for me. A famous and successful bird photographer and a wonderful teacher, told me, after one of his seminars: "Mike, there isn't any secret to taking a great bird photograph, you just have to get everything right". I have yet to accomplish that, but I have come close a few times, that's what keeps me going. I have found that traveling to a new location can be a very invigorating experience, as was my recent first trip to Bosque del Apache NWR. This spring I am going to take my first trip to Big Bend NP. I mean, even High Island can go stale after ten spring migrations. Just a thot, try a new spot, one you have never visited.
This is what I mean when I say "UNEXPECTED"
