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)

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