Wildlife photography is a type of photography that focuses on capturing animals in their natural surroundings.Wildlife photographers may often require field craft skills in addition to their photography talents. Some animals and birds, for example, are difficult to approach, so understanding their behaviour is necessary to predict their activities. Some species may necessitate stalking or the use of a hide or blind for concealment.
Siamese fighting fish: Initially bred for aggression.
Beeta: The most widely available aquarium fish in the world.
Birds Of Prey: Northern Goshawk tearing up its prey.
Cyornis Rubeculoides: Blue Throated blue flycatcher.
A beautiful photograph can motivate people to take action. Photographers have extensively documented the plight of the Bengal tiger, making it one of the world’s most iconic endangered species. The magnificence of these animals, a perfect combination of beauty, grace, and power, sparked the imagination and indignation of a global community. This resulted in successful calls for the abolition of tiger hunting and the preservation of tiger habitats. Stunning images of these big cats have saved them from extinction.
Owl Of Athenathe: Virgin goddess of wisdom.
Turdus Migratorius: Migratory songbird of the true thrush genus and Turdidae.
Gallinago Gallinago: Stocky wader native to the Old World.
Ardea Alba Modesta: A white heron in the genus Ardea.
To photograph is to hold one’s breath as all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. At that precise moment, mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual pleasure. Wildlife photography is a difficult pastime to get into because it requires a significant amount of dedication. To succeed in this industry, you must not only improve your photography talents but also study the animals you will be photographing.
Grasshopper: The most ancient living group of chewing herbivorous insects.
Chloromyia Formosa: Species of soldier flies belonging to the family Stratiomyidae.
Mantodea: Insects that contains over 2,400 species in about 460 genera in 33 families.
Lynx Spider: Most species make little use of webs.
“A single touch of nature brings the entire world together.” “Follow nature’s pace: patience is her secret.” What a glorious greeting the sun gives the mountains!”
Graphium Teredon: A species of swallowtail butterfly.
Damselflies: Flying insects of the suborder Zygoptera.
The Gaur: Known as the Indian bison.
Malabar Giant Squirrel: A large multi-coloured tree squirrel species.
When words fail me, I’ll turn to photographs. When images become insufficient, I will be content with silence. This chapter deals with the exuberant behaviour of fish,birds, insects, and animals in their natural habitat.
