Animals in the environment category
In this category we’re not looking for typical close-up portraits of animals or birds, but rather photos that show them in their natural environment.
This forces you to swop your long lenses for wider ones (or to zoom out) and to carefully think about the composition of your images. Think carefully where you place your subject(s) within the frame, consider using creative angles and try to capture a feeling of connection between the animal and its surroundings.
