      Seems like theres not a lot of wildlife shot on here. So lets see your best wildlife work.

      NOTE: NO ZOO SHOTS!

      Here are some of my favourites:

      1990 Miata
      2013 Leaf
      2018(No, Really!) Locost 247

      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

      I chased this bird around for about 10 min. before I got this shot.

      Took this in Italy... OK it's a zoo shot.

      Here's pretty much the only real wildlife shot I have. Not that great, I know.

      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

      I got this guy on the beach in Hilton Head this summer. He let me get really close because some fisherman were feeding him.

      Here is one I took in Costa Rica.

      Fruit bat? Where did you shoot that at?


    18. 10-22-2005 03:41 AM #20
      Nobody will ever accuse me of being a pro!
      This was taken...by a cheap Fugi finepix...out my passenger window while driving.

      But I always enjoy looking at it.

      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.

      Some great shots in here! Unfortunately, I don't seem to have a lot of good wildlife shots... this will have to do...


    26. 10-23-2005 11:43 PM #28
      Some good shots here...

      One of the owls around Leslie Spit in Toronto last winter.

      And you sure don't see a hawk in the bush often trying to find its prey that it just missed...

      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.

      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)
