Wildness Into View
by Michael Doyle

Staying hidden in order to see
Is the trick of wildlife photography
So the expert presents as he will say
But, if you're trying to hike, you don't have all day

Preplanned is always truly better
But most of us have to work around the weather
For the richness adjust the aperture priority
And the rest, as they say, will be history

Freezing the action with a high shutter speed
Will help shape the light as you need
Triggering into those levels of intimacy
While radio controlled photos will make you legendary

Animals can be photographed at the zoo
Which often affords a much closer view
It's all in an effort for conservancy
Remember patience is the key for wildlife photography

Flower shots are best taken in macro
The shallow depth of field allows for the flow
Sharp and crisp or smoothed into an impression
Remember to vary the subjects of your expression

Preplanning bring your best satisfaction
Doing your research will bring the most gratification
Of improving the odds of capturing the view
To capture your shots otherwise will be rare and few

Repeated access to your subjects travels well
To get the best photos, you'll eventually prevail
By using a variety of lenses in your opportunities
All of these are things that build memories

Telling the tales of habitats taken in place
Makes it more natural in their pleasant embrace
Pick your spot and wait for the right opportunity
You'll get the best photos by keeping your serenity

The best lesson given in all a photographer's days
Is to learn that patience and time truly pays
As with most things it's all about the connection
Well balanced comfort brings about its reception
