Special moments happen....
I've always followed what I call the 2 Ps: Patience and Preparedness. You need to let nature and wildlife do its thing and get comfortable with your presence, once that happens they go about doing their thing and You can get really special images.
You also need to be prepared every second to shoot, camera on and settings dialed in so when those special moments happen you're not fumbling around and miss things.
