To get a Potoo Bird Photography, it is necessary to have the bird close enough so that the details of wings and feathers can be clearly seen, even at a high shutter speed. There are many ways to bring birds closer, including camouflage and using a long lens or teleconverter. But perhaps the most important technique is simply to let the birds come to you—if the birds are comfortable with you, they will allow you to approach them at much closer range than if they think you might scare them away or harm them in any way.
