Well, that rules out putting my wife's cats under wildlife, then, although they don't seem to be under the impression that they're "captive animals" at all!

I think Captive animals even if they arn't domesticated should not be in the wildlife category. I was so anoyed that after the months of work it took to take this shot that it was judged next to shots that were just taken through the fence of a wildlife park.
lol Chris, was your bait up a tree?
As I am sure you know Ian up a tree is really the only way to bait these vicious creatures
I have to agree with Mattw on this one.
But come on guys does it really matter ?
If you go to the Leopard enclosure at Chester Zoo you are lucky to get a glimpse of the animals and are kept at a distance from them by bars and glass. On a safari there is nothing between you and them so providing the guide can get you to within range of your lens a shot of one is arguably easier. So which situation requires most skill on the part of the photographer?
I hardly ever look at categories anyway, my point is to try and show that the situation is not clear cut.
Like Hazard say's does it really matter......I'd prefer to keep the muppets out of the forums!.....But that's a whole new arguement I guess.....

But where would you go, Ade?
Ade could join me on the Hedgehog Safari. I'm sure he would be able to keep up with them
THANK YOU......Spose I asked for that didn't I?
It's a good job I'm thick skinned.....No smartarse remarks on that quote please, you rotten sods!
Is this supposed to be a photographic site or what?
As we are all photographers of differing standards, surely the most important thing is the quality of the final image produced.
I agree taking animals in the wild is more difficult, but if the images recorded by this method are of poor quality, why not take them in wildlife parks etc. instead.
At the end of the day, a good photo will always stand out, no matter how, or where it was taken.

There is absolutly no problem at all with that Derek, no one is saying it should not be done, just give us the facts and post in the appropriate gallery.
Well at least it will only be 25 or so posts a day then as I reckon 80% plus of the snaps posted on EPZ are domesticated, captive, caged, captured, drugged, dead, super-glued, frozen etc. etc.

No, today there were aprox double the number of posts in Wildlife than Pets/Captive Animals, and only a tiny portion were in the wrong gallery (including a pic of some buttons?).
I could see no dead, druged, frozen or glued animals in either gallery!
Then again some of the wildlife photos seem to wander off as is there want and totally disappear
