Photo Challenge #5 – Wildlife

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Wildlife! Some wild animal species are everywhere – squirrels, crows, lizards… Other species are more elusive, requiring the photographer to carefully plan and wait, hoping to catch a glimpse of the species they’re looking for! Some types of wildlife are covered in fur, others in scales. Some types of wildlife dwell in the trees while others make their home in the desert. Even the most inhospitable environments on Earth like the frigid landscape of Antarctica provide habitats for wild animals!

In this week’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge, we’re challenging bloggers to photograph what they feel best represents the theme Wildlife! On Wednesday, November 14th (at 2pm EST, so be sure to submit your entries before that time!) we’ll choose 1 judge’s choice winner, 5 runner ups, and 1 audience choice winner & share their entries here on LetsBeWild.com!

      Great photos of natures’ wildlife at Yellowstone. Thanks for sharing photos of these animals, of which most folks only get to see in a zoo setting. I especially enjoyed the bison rolling in the dirt.

      that shot at the bird feeder should be framed. I just love the one little bird “talking with its mouth full”! ;)

      your capture of the sun reflecting up beneath the duck’s neck is definitely my favorite of your grouping. How’d you manage to get that duck to hold on cue like that?! ;)

      Great shots of that snake – it’s always a treat to find one in the wild that will stay put long enough to photograph

      I really like how the lighting on the giraffes seems surreal. Great use of the light and post processing. Excellent!!
