NOTICE: This group is for animals "Born and Living in the Wild."

That means - NO photographs of birds at your backyard feeders, or squirrels, or any other animal
that is fed by human hands; or photographed eating food left outside by humans.


Also included - NO photographs taken of any type of Sea Life living in any Aquarium or Zoo.

Group Description

There is a huge difference between taking a photo of an animal in the wild and one of an
animal in a controlled environment. The challenges of getting good shots of truly wild
animals are often overlooked by the less informed.

No animals that are fed by humans, please. No pets, hand-reared animals, or zoo animals.

This group will be a space to share your true wildlife photography to be viewed by people
who will recognize the effort it entails.

Group Pool Rules

1. This is a public group and everyone is welcome to join – no invitation required.
2. To avoid photo flooding we are limiting the number of photos you are allowed to post to 5 per day.

6. Please specify where your photo was taken, whether in the title, description or in the tags.

If you have reliable information to share about a certain wilderness area, please tell us more by creating a discussion topic for the specific area.
