    I tend to be a reasonable photographer, but anything can and will happen when you are trying to take pictures of baby animals. Yet, I see picture after picture that is just fantastic. Meanwhile, all my little ones, while being tame enough to handle, flee from the camera and try to hide under one another.

    How do you do it?

    (The picture is the very mixed up Brooder Bunch from purchased hatching eggs. All hatchlings are within about a week or so of each other and get along well.)

    Move in slowly and take lots and lots of pictures! Usually you can get a good one out of about 10 or so and just delete the rest. [​IMG]

    BTW, you pic isn't a bad one. [​IMG]

    Thank you. I thought it was cute how the little barred rock was looking over the backs of the Rhode Island Reds. But even that took quite a few pictures and the result...

    Forget settings or actually framing. lol

    Move slowly, take lots of pics, and avoid flash whenever possible. Cute babies!
