The “uncharted territory” is about how animals live their life. Wildlife photography focuses on capturing the lives of animals in their natural habitats. Nature and her progeny present a plethora of magnificent moments that many people may never see. It may also keep track of in-depth details of an animal’s appearance or its presence in its surroundings.
