Not all wildlife photography comes with a pleasant lighting setting. Our photographers capture delightful scenes and activities in the wild, however, most often you will find your subjects in the darkest and lightest settings, often hidden amongst the rocks. With a bit of patience, you can find many images of animals in their natural environments in various settings across the globe.
Kangaroos are known to be particularly shy so they often require your patience to follow them into hiding behind obstacles. Some of these may seem foolhardy, however, the climb posed is helped along by a hanging tag which indicates that the photograph is secure and convenient to take.
