well I'll tell you, at times they walk right past me so I can get from inches to at this time, 20-40 ft away. I actually have to step back to get more than just a head shot in. It's a problem for me, but I've learned to deal with it...Irenejoy said:Great shots. How far away were you? All the birds and wildlife where I love are so shy it is really hard work trying to get close enough.
