I am a total novice to posting pictures on this forum and am looking for advice from those of you, like ZAZ, who do a really great job. So far I have found that getting on the same plain as the bird and top views show the most detail. Getting as close to the bird or zooming in is a real benefit, but using the cropping feature in the picture software is a really big help to fine tune those close-ups. Those landscape pictures with a small bird in the center don't cut it for me, and most people do not have the ability to blow up or expand them enough to show any detail. What other tips and tricks do you use?
