Hello Filipe,
Thanks for your kind words on both this and the Emperor dragonfly.
No, I use neither hide nor a feeder, though we do have feeders at home for birds in the winter.
Some tips for approaching birds:
Never approach with speed: slow movements are better.
Don't approach directly: take a zic-zac route.
Wear neutral coloured clothing and never bright colours.
Try to avoid showing bare parts of the body like the face and hands. Hide behind a bush or tree.
Try to photograph birds when they are busy feeding, singing, courting, or feeding young: usually earlier in the morning or late afternoon.
I try to follow these principles but I consider myself to be lucky when I succeed.
Good luck!
Regards, Ivan
Cyprus
