    • Well, basically, a lot of times it’s luck. You have your sights on a bird, set the camera on continuous focus and shooting, and make the shutter speed very fast–like 1/2000, then keep shooting without turning away when it looks like something interesting is about to happen. Within a few seconds, my camera can take dozens and dozens of photos. Many of them will be unusable, but a few can be interesting.
