To be in the right place at the right time and under the perfect circumstances will mean a priceless group of pictures of wild animals.The first thing that must be said is use caution! We have to remember above all else that these critters are wild animals, no matter how beautiful that fox is or how cuddly that baby bear looks. They do get very cranky when they discover us in their world. But if you are careful, quiet and patient, you can get the shot.
When taking animal shots you should try to keep the background simple. Try to avoid overly complex backgrounds that distract the viewer. Also, be sure that you get as close as you can. Far away shots of animals can work, but they are harder to pull off than close up shots.To get great close up shots you should really think of getting a telephoto lens. There are some telephoto lenses built so you do not need a tripod. This is great as hauling a tripod around when taking shots of wild animals can be difficult.See the 25 amazing photos of wild animals at feed inspiration.
