A handful of realizations of a newbie who just tried his hands ( and got soiled ) at wild life photography.
1. It is all about patience and luck.
2. To return home with good photos, you have to put in a lot of effort.
3. Be ready to get soiled.
4. Suitable weather
To photograph butterflies and dragon flies, the best occasion is when wind is blowing continuously. This will force the fly to settle on a spot for a prolonged period of time.
5. Click many pics.
This goes with out saying. Only one might come out good among the tens you have shot!
