When you hear the term: Wildlife Photography, the thought of beautiful frame-worthy photos naturally emerges. But it seems for every perfect photo, there are tons of crappy and hilarious ones. Every photographer knows capturing the perfect shot takes plenty of patience and, importantly, practice for wildlife. Animals hardly stay still, neither do they care about posing for the camera, and as such, taking images that are destined for garbage bins remains inevitable.
A big thanks to a Facebook community called: Crap Wildlife Photography, photographers who managed to fail during their attempts in capturing a perfect animal shot are exposed. From an image of out of focus, an awkward pose to something bizarre, these photo exists and are often just as fun to look at as the perfect ones. So for all the people who appreciate wildlife, our compilation is for you. Do brace up for some giggles as these photos aren’t like the ones from National Geographic. Enjoy!
