35 Truly Dramatic Examples of Animal Photography

January 20th, 2010

Sometimes we take wildlife pictures that we see in books and magazines for granted; seldom does it give you the impressions that they were taken easily. The truth is, photographing animals (especially in wildlife) is very involved, such a moment could only be told through some timely amazing shots. For someone who loves animals, photographing them can be both very fulfilling and frustrating at the same time. Excellent animal photography requires experience, knowledge and patience.

Animals can make very eye catching subjects to photograph in wild. Taking wildlife photography in a place where the animals don’t fear humans makes your task a bit difficult. In their natural environment, animals often provide many opportunities for taking dramatic shots. Let’s now take a look at some of these dramatic images of animal photography to see emotions in the wild nature.

The snake one is from a Fark Photoshop contest, but the funny thing about that is that it’s less interesting than some of the ones that are clearly real photos. Some great stuff here.

All and all very nice photo’s. I have one remark though: The photo of the snake attacking the bird is fake. I don’t know whether it was the post author’s intention to only show real photo’s or not, but that one for sure isn’t one. Seen how the same snakehead has been applied to more photo’s.

MissingDesign
Guest
6 years 6 months ago

Wow, those were some amazing shots.
The one of the cat & mouse was cool, and I loved the dramatic lighting on the housecats, lol.

@Dratio Do you have other examples w/the snakehead? That’s interesting, I wouldn’t be surprised though… That shot would have had to be a one-in-a-trillion chance.

Yegor Korzh
Guest

First image is the best, haven’t seen it in other recent similar collections. And agree that photoshopped images are less interesting than some real ones!

manz
Guest
6 years 6 months ago

Noticed a few comments about the fake snake picture. Might be best to separate real from photoshopped in the future.

I thought the snail picture was amazing. And I never pass up the sight of a gorgeous kitty photo!

jase

It’s not long before there is no difference between a photo that is Photoshopped and one that isn’t. Several cameras are integrating algorithms derived from Photoshop to enhance a picture as it is being recorded. Should those be separate as well? Not. Who cares, really? These photos are no less beautiful because they are created rather than captured.

I believe the one with the two dogs chasing the rabbit is a still from a movie- unfortunately I can’t think of what movie it is, and I just watched it a few days ago. *blonde moment*

Otherwise very nice collection of photos. I love the tiger rising up out of the water.
