Being a wildlife photographer is an incredibly exciting and rewarding profession to make a living from. You are given the opportunity to spend your days earning money in nature while photographing some of the world’s most extraordinary creatures. A majority of these animals love having their picture taken and pose for their 15 minutes of fame. However, others have a more shy nature and hide from the camera lens. Sometimes, hiding isn’t enough, and these creatures need to put drastic measures in place to ensure the photographer doesn’t get the desired shot. These are some of the best ways camera-shy creatures have tried to avoid being snapped.
A Curious Fox
This photographer was reviewing his shots when a curious fox couldn’t help himself and snuck behind to get a peek at the photographer’s pictures. Our bet is that the fox was the subject of these photos and wanted to make sure his photographer was getting the right angles.
No More Photographing
One thing you don’t expect as a nature photographer is the subject of your capturing trying to distract you from your work. Our best guess is that this seal got tired of the photographer taking pictures and thought the best thing to do was climb on him.
