I'm afraid I'm not buying the "I point, I shoot, scenario, Brian. Photography like all art forms, requires a high degree of skill and practice to become proficient. There is a whole lot (skill) that goes on between the "I point, and the I shoot." And you, plus a select number of others here, my friend, have mastered it quite well.

I agree.

Like having your camera settings correct before you even take the shot, seeing and reacting to the bird you see in the corner of your eye, getting your lens up, getting the subject in the frame (the "point"), locking on AF, "shoot" while tracking the moving subject.

oops...sorry Mike...i missed this post somehow,
to me it comes from the passion, i love the feeling of getting up early in the morning, getting out to one of my haunts before sun up, in anticipation of what the day will bring, hearing the birds singing as the day begins with the sunrise, there has been times when i have worked all night, then head out after work chasing the northern lights, till the sun comes up, then switch out to my gear and head out birding...after that, if things don't pan out, then tomorrow morning, just before the sun starts to rise, i will do it all over again and enjoy another morning that most times seems like it is all mine with the birds, the rising sun, the excitement of what will come along.

last summer though, with covid though, things were a whole lot different, one of my main haunts was closed to the public, another of my haunts was over run by people to the point i would pull into the parking lot, see all the people and just turn around and leave, of all my years doing this, last year to me seems the most unproductive especially in the way of waterfowl as i had no places where i could get close without having someone stepping over me as i try to get a picture of a duck :-D

haha, a lesson we all need to keep in mind, last spring after years of chasing northern harriers i finally came upon a gray ghost, that i was properly setup for with camera and lens, so a couple days later i returned to the same spot to hopefully see it again, which happened to be at my local airport.
i was all set and ready for action when on the far side of the field i could see something hunting that i thought was the female northern, i grabbed a couple shots and just then a helicopter came in for a landing, so i switched modes, dropped my shutter speed way down (for prop blur), took my shots then started chimping and to my surprise what i thought was a female northern was actually a short eared owl, a first for me, so i quickly headed to the other side of the field to where it was hunting.
i no sooner got there and the owl came back, i was shooting away and it landed not far from me as i blasted off shots, evening sun, at my back, everything perfect, till to my dismay...i forgot to readjust my settings after the helicopter...my first and only encounter...gone in a mess of blur, a couple turned out half decent but...i was not a happy camper :lol:

so, next time, i will go back, i will point, i will shoot and hopefully remember to boost my shutter speed  :p
