For me wildlife photography is communication with the subject; not hiding the the bushes with a super telelens. But then … I’m not a wildlife photographer.
Pictures shot with an 18-135mm zoom lens.
Sometimes the eye for an eye approach does not work; Ostriches with their head in the sand or flamingos (first photo) with their head in the water …
… or Gymnogene (Polyboroides typus)
