Wow...   those are great!   In a way its a statistics game.   Even with .5% keepers, all you need is 200 shots.

Yes but when a rare bird comes and goes and all you get is blue skies and blurry trees, it's very frustrating.... Then if you want to get close, capture landings and feedings, etc, it's less statistics and more preparation...

I am still ill-prepared....

But i'm working on it!
