The Wildlife/Animal/Nature/Creature Photography Thread

I notice a distinct lack of animal photographs in this section, we must all have some hiding somewhere!? I see threads about safaris with the odd excellent example shot posted up by a FT member.

Personally I find it extremely satisfying photographing animals. Lining up the composition, predicting their next move, waiting for eye contact, and then that feeling when they finally play ball!

So let's have a share! Be they wild, captive, pets etc.

I'll get the ball running and flood the thread with a few to begin with.

edit - I'll keep an alphabetised list in post #2 of all animals posted so far.
