Group Description

Only true wildlife (Fauna & Flora) allowed.
Caged or contained animals are not allowed. For them to be "wild" they need to be able to survive on their own, in their natural habitat, without ANY human interaction.
PLEASE read the rules in the Group Rules section.

Why this group?
I've entered a bunch of contests and I always have to compete against photos taken in a ZOO environment or other easily controlled environment, which is ridiculous to compare since the conditions to succeed are so different.
