Local Kingfisher. Very strong sunlight means that the iridescence of the feathers causes a troublesome metering issue...

I'm with mohikan in that there is something special about raptors, my favourite at the moment are the kestrel chicks I've been privileged to see develop and fledge.
But I get pleasure out of being able to see and photograph any wildlife as long as I can do it without disturbing them.

Very true just look at a vulture! one UGLY bird but can be very intelligent and ferocious.

Helpful Post! This post was flagged as helpful

I was going to say that my favourite wildlife is the tasty ones! I spent many years doing the other sort of shooting, prefer the camera now. I used to wonder when I heard people say that, but now I'm older, I understand. Rather watch them fly and run free. I love the pic of a bird on a fence post, but I can't decide if it's a Snipe or a Jack Snipe, I'm more experienced in the rear view as they zigzag away. I think the Snipe has longer tail feathers than the Jack Snipe but they're not clearly visible here. I remember standing on the shore of Lough Neagh with my Labrador at heel, when a Snipe flew in and proceeded to feed not two feet away. Grouse ( my long departed, never to be forgotten companion) was quivering from nose to tail, but remained steady. When the wee bird realised we were there, I swear it did a double take of the scene before giving a squawk and clearing off!

Lions, whether they are in the wild or captive. They are so majestic and offer great photo opportunities. Here a a few I've taken:

I don't think I have a particular favourite species but I do like shots that show behaviour rather than more static record shots (that's not to say that I don't do a lot of the latter Wink )

If pushed to make a choice I suppose it would have to be Baboons (but my shots are really captive animals, not "Wildlife" as we don't have many free-roaming baboons in Dorset (a few driving cars round here though! Tongue )
