Every Day for the last week when going out to fly i Saw across one of the fields Some birds. I grew up interested in wildlife so i was intrigued when i saw a pair of little egrits. At first i was not sure what they where as they where rare in my area but after observation it was quite clear. The next time i saw them i wanted to film them in flight however i did a few things before to make sure that the footage will be great and the the safety of the animals will not be compromised. First i practiced by following aeroplanes with plane stupid rc. this gave me the neccicary experience of filming moving objects in flight objects. However a risk would be that there isn't an aeroplane pilot there to warn you where they are turning so some experience is required. Another tip would be to use a quadcopter that is fairly quiet preferably a six inch but a efficient five inch will do to prevent scaring the wildlife. other than that filming is easy. I had a really great time filming these amazing creatures and it is a great feeling flying alongside nature. I really want anyone to try it it is like nothing else . if you follow these tips, you and the animals will be fine. something i would do next time is try and find the egrets on a day where their colour contrasts with the sky this would make them easier to see and make sure collisions will not happen.
in conclusion flying with real birds is great fun and a way to capture the natural beauty of flight. I strongly advise following the tips to ensure everything safety.
really hope you enjoyed the article .
