Wildlife photography is one of my favorite types of photography because it is both relaxing and challenging at the same time. Photographing wildlife in their natural habitat means heading out to lakes, fields, forests, and other place to wander around and capture photos of deer, squirrels, and other types of animals just doing what they do every day. The challenge is that most wild animals are shy, and don’t just stand around waiting for you to show up with your camera. You have to spend time learning about their habits and habitat, and then hope that both them and the weather cooperate when you head out into the wild with your gear. It’s a lot of preparation combined with a dose of luck when you get that amazing photo of an animal in the wild.
