What does a hobby wildlife photographer do on a ugly, rainy, cloudy, dark, depressive Sunday? He/she watches YouTube clips about other wildlife photographer in action, reads about lenses, cleans all equipment and if there is still some time, shoots photos of whatever like the cat on the sofa [portrait lense], smurfs [macro lense] or the chimneys across the street [telezoom].
I ended up with a question, though. All these YouTube wildlife photographers are out there and record in rainy, cloudy days. The “real” wildlife photographers are out there under any conditions? Or because there is nothing to shoot, they have time to record?
Having given some thoughts, I [almost] decided not to buy the 200-500mm lense but the 300mm f/4 Prime instead, with the 1,4x teleconverter. Pricey though.
