Why is encountering a wild animal so exhilarating? What is it about animal photography that fascinates and delights us? Sometimes we find familiar connections, such as the affection in a moose couple kissing or the kinship in a family of cheetah cubs encircling their mother. And other times we discover something exotic like the majesty of a tiger portrait or the startling scarlet of a starfish on coral. The animal kingdom inspires a breadth of art: Grizzly Bears painted in every color of the rainbow, wild horses photographed mid-nuzzle, wolves sketched masterfully into canvas. Wildlife artwork offers both the comfort of the familiar and the wonder of the enigmatic.
