Tip #49: Photograph Wildlife the Day After a Storm

December 07, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Although a windy day might be tough to find wildlife to photograph, the day after a storm, or shortly after a storm ends, can be one of the best times to find and photograph critters. )Clearing storms are also wonderful for landscape photos.) The animals have been hunkered down to avoid the wind, rain or snow, and are now hungry and need to get up to stretch or dry off. Think of how stir crazy you can feel after a couple of days of being inside during a storm, and how good it can feel to get back outside when the weather clears up. Wildlife gets the same way.

Birds of prey will start preening their feathers shortly after rain or snow stops. Once the sun comes out they will stretch their wings to warm back up in the natural heat. Tracks in fresh snow can be much easier to see so use them to find the coyote searching for a tasty meal or the snowshoe hare moving from bush to bush.
