Shooting animals can be quite tricky. Most wildlife photographers have to take a lot of effort and patientice to get the shot they want. And normally, you recognize wildlife photographers from their super telephoto lenses. But why do they need up to 600mm local length? This has two reasons… either to protect themselves or to stay far enough before the animals takes flight. Shooting a predator like a tiger or a lion with a 50mm lens might only work when the whole pack is full. Otherwise you won’t get close enough for a nice shot. But even then it is still very dangerous. And preys will espace before you get close enough. That’s why focal length gets so important in wildlife photography.

Another possibility is to take animal shots in a zoo. Unfortunately, there is always a fence or a thick security glass that make the shot quite challenging. But it has also some advantages. You get closer to the animals and they are normally less shy. The bird shot below was taken in Taman Safari Cisarua which is close to Bogor, Java Barat (Western Java), Indonesia.
