When Birds in the Wild Don't Want to Pose

Getting more than one bird in the wild to pose for your camera can be a real challenge.

There always seems to be one that doesn't want to cooperate. 

Sometimes, you just have to shoot as many photos as you can.  It may take hours.
And, you may fill up some SD cards with plenty of photos to delete.
When you edit the photos after downloading just crop the uncooperative birds out.

These Black-winged Stilts (Himantopus himantopus) are migratory birds that visit Okinawa from November through March.

LOL :) Maybe they are just shy :)

Shy, I guess. Maybe skittish would be the best way to describe those birds.
