When Curious Critters Interrupt Photographers

Some critters tend to shy away from the camera.

 

But these curious animals show no sign of fear as they get up close to photographers in their natural habitat.

 

The adorable images show bears, big cats, birds and other members of the animal kingdom distracting photographers from the task in hand as they investigate what's going on.

 

One meerkat cheekily sits on the back of a photographer as he gets down on the ground to take some pictures in Bostwana, Africa, while a young black bear is caught standing upright as it examines a camera set in Ontario, Canada.

 

In Austria, an alpine marmot gets very close to a cameraman, as it pokes its head into a lens hood.

 

Scroll down to see the friendly beasts, making a wildlife photographer's job a touch more tricky.

 

A cheetah sniffs around a photographer in South Africa, who seems unaware the big cat is so close 

 

A curious kitten approached animal photographer Mitsuaki Iwago sitting on the ground filming. The adorable incident occurred on the island of Okinawa, Japan

@on the bay  The wolf is not in the wild but on a preseve.  The people are the Dutchers.  I've met them.  There is a good chance that wolf was raised by them.

 

I believe he is part of the Sawtooth Pack.

@Cakers3-

That is so neat! Thank you for sharing that.

I would love a wolf friend.

My daughter's teacher brought his 2 "dogs" 

to her elementary school after classes one day. They were really wolves but of course we didn't tell!

One was a close relative of White Fang.

I was in love (with the wolves!)

@on the bay  Cool.   I've hugged them at preserves.  Beautiful creatures.

 

The pics are all so sweet-thanks for sharing something wonderful.
