Too Close For Comfort (50) More files...
Our fascination with wildlife and animals' natural curiosity can bring us too close for comfort. Bold photographers approach a little to closely to huge Elk and then must lock themselves in their car for protection, a habituated Baboon robs a shopper at a produce market of her rhubarb and mangoes and a Moose with a hankering for road salt licks a car and sticks its head inside! This is a gallery of cautionary photos and a reminder to leave wildlife wild by keeping your distance.
