Keywords: wildlife, field_report, nature

There is a lot to learn when it comes to Wildlife Photography and the amateur photographers and professionals in the community share their experience from their trips with the rest of us. You may also be interested in our many travel stories, with photographers going on assignment for the National Geographic and more. 

We have a separate About Bird Photography section at Nikonians as well.
