This Photographer Built His Own Pond for Bird Photography – Fstoppers

One of the hardest parts of wildlife and bird photography is simply finding and waiting for your subjects. This wildlife photographer made a way for them to come to him, however, by designing and digging his own pond for bird photography, and this neat series of videos show the ideas that went into the design, the construction process, and the impressive results that came from the project. 

Coming to you from Stefano Ianiro Wildlife, this awesome video series shows the design and construction processes of his DIY birding pond along with the results he has been able to get. What I really appreciated was learning about everything that went into the design. The pond is not simply a hole dug in the ground and filled with water. Rather, Ianiro put a lot of careful thought into creating an area that was attractive for birds and suitable for photography. And of course, it is fantastic to see the results he is able to get, as well as how neat the experience is. After all, how many of us can say we made our own custom bird photography pond?
