30 Adorable Animal Photography Examples

Animal Photography is probably the toughest type of photography. Partly because you can’t actually ask the animals to “smile” and partly because most of the best animals photographed are dangerous. Combined with the fact that animals are always on the move and are very difficult to predict, animal photography becomes the biggest challenge a photographer can face.

Whether you are just trying to capture a flying sparrow or a tiger who is busy having lunch, Animal Photography always comes with its own set of challenges. It not only requires a loin’s heart to approach an animal, but a lot of patience and determination too. Before you take the plunge to learn taking stunning photos of animals, you have to first study their behavior, their reactions to particular situations and their actions.

A photographer must also learn how to camouflage himself in order to not turn-off the animals (and get attacked by them). He has to learn their body language and their patterns so that he can easily predict what the animal’s next move could be.

We have collected some of the best and adorable photographs of animals that you are going to love. Be sure to check the angle of the photographs, exposure, the focus technique and color combination so that you will be able to take photos like these yourself.

    I don’t see how most of these are adorable. In my opinion only like eight of them could be qualified as such.

  5. What is a loin’s heart?? haha….

  6. godzilla complex /

    nice baboon schlong.

  7. Personally, I love the Pug shot, but I’m just biased. The running cow shot is pretty amazing and quite humorous. These are all good shots, though, and I applaud all the photographers.
