    At the suggestion of Bitter that some people contribute more than they critique (or, at least provide some semblance of a clue as to knowing a lick about photography) I give to you these three tips/suggestions with relevant photographs. Please note the tips are nothing new or special, but I hope the images are decent examples of how being prepared/aware can allow you to come away with a nice photo.

    First, keep your gear ready, and keep your eyes open. Was my camera not in the open, and had I not looked up from my desk I would have missed this unusual (for around here) sunset:

    Secondly, set traps. And be patient.

    Thirdly, enjoy the world around you. These Totem Poles stood out for me because of their vivid colours against the forested backdrop.

    That's all for now. Happy shooting.

    Thanks, the Racoon shot wasn't actually something planned or set up, a girl in a park dropped her ice cream and a minute later the Racoon came along.

    But these sorts of set ups are easily done with wild animals who are accustomed to people, like Squirrels in campgrounds.

    This photo, on the other hand, was one where I took some time to rest on the rocks and capture:
