Breathtaking Close Up Photographs of Animals


Getting close up photographs of wild animals is a dangerous task, for obvious reasons, but both photographers and scientists alike enjoy studying animals up close.  While some animals run away from humans and are hard to capture, the larger and more dangerous animals such as lions, tigers and bears tend to attack, so photographers have to be clever about it.

This collection includes some breathtaking photographs of animals that are shot close up.
