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

      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)

      Remember folks, "wildlife" does not include zoo/museum/park photos. If the creature is in captivity, it ain't wild. Otherwise, I remember this old thread and wondered why it never really took off. I don't personally have a lot of wildlife shots

      I've shared most of these on here before, I think. From a trip to Kenya last year. These are from Lake Nakuru and the Masaai Mara.

      i saw that in the first post but didnt want to start a new thread when one for animals already existed and died. I figured it was a better use of the vortex to bump an old thread that had a good start and modify it slightly so that it got more responses.

      I can just start a new thread titled "Post your Animal pictures" if that would be better.
