24 Outstanding Shots of Wildlife

by David Peterson 6 comments

Wild animals are probably the most challenging living subjects to photograph. They are elusive, uncooperative and not very fond of humans--which means that capturing photos of them is an exercise in patience and skill. Finding wildlife is just the first step; if you want truly amazing images of those deer, foxes and coyotes you need to devote long periods of time and lots of frames to the endeavor. These are just a few examples of what kind of images you can get with enough patience and knowledge.
