1. Be patient: Animals rarely do what you want them to do, when you want them to do it. Just be ready when they do it!
  2. Know your species: Intimate knowledge of how the animal you are photographing behaves will give you a greater chance of predicting when they are going to do something interesting.
  3. Watch the seasons. Animal behaviour and accessibility in the wild changes greatly from season to season. If you learn how seasonal changes affect the species you are interested in then you will increase your chances of good shots.
  4. Study the images of wildlife professionals: This will give you inspiration and if you take time to look and learn why their shots are successful, you'll be able to put some of those elements into your own photography.
  5. Eventually buy a long lens or have a good zoom lens on your camera. If you are serious about wildlife photography you are going to need a telephoto lens of at least 300 mm.
