Taken looking over the rail of my deck straight down ..
And this one is straight out from my deck. I was at 4x optical zoom + my zoom lens. There is no easy place to photograph them. I think I did as good as I could.
Does semi-domesticated-but-not-in-a-zoo wildlife count?
Believe it or not, I took this in a night club in Charlotte, NC

Actually, it was some rich white dude who knew the owner of the club. This wasn't yer 'normal' club, it was the upscale Men's Club of Charlotte, I was dating one of the dancers at the time and knew all the managers. So they allowed me to bring my camera inside under strict rules to not shoot anything but the tiger

Sorry, I don't give hi-rez photos away for free.

Fruit bat? Where did you shoot that at?
I don't know what type of a bat it is, but anyway, it was here in Germany on a field. First thought it was a bird, but then got really surprised. I rarely see bats and am still kinda scared of them.

I'm bumping up this very old thread in hopes that people will post some of their wildlife pictures.
I have recently become very interested in wildlife photography. Being a biologist, it makes sense.
I figure we have a car thread, and a random thread, why not a wildlife thread.
i would make one exception to the original post. If its in a Zoo, that is OK with me.
Not my best, but this guy hangs out near my house until the Fall hunting season then I don't see him until the Spring. I've seen him the past three years. I also have a Great Horned Owl that is winking while I took it's picture I'll have to see if I can find it and post it.
here are a few bird captures I have taken over the last few days.

They are better than my previous attempt. But still not great. Im going to try my luck at some land animals this weekend.
I took my camera out to the Desert Museum for the first time last night. I'm still learning but i think I managed a few pretty good shots. (T1i w/ 55-250IS)
