In animal photography, live animals are photographed, preferably in their natural habitat. But it certainly includes recordings in zoos or aquariums. The most famous competition in the field of wildlife and nature photography is Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Most wild animals are shy and will not allow humans to get a satisfactory shot close enough using standard amateur equipment. Conversely, a few dangers are enough to keep you from choosing too close a distance to protect yourself. When shooting in a zoo, you usually come across fences, trenches, or other situations. Therefore, wildlife photography is mainly the field of cameras with long to long telephoto lenses.
