“It's up to us as photographers to give voice to the natural world.”Frans Lanting

I love taking pictures of animals in the wild. Not so much when they are in captivity. There just isn’t much of the challenge to it. In addition, often their backgrounds and foreground obstructions which are distracting or difficult to work around. So, in the pics of this gallery, only two comes from an animal in captivity. Can you figure out which ones?

There are many animals on my “bucket list” yet to be captured, including bears, hummingbirds and everything in a game reserve in Africa. Time will tell how many ends up in the portfolio.
