Since starting this nomadic journey almost 3 years ago I have graduated from professional animal stalker to amateur animal photographer. My goal is to one day become a professional animal photographer but that means years of classes and sifting through thousands of my blurry photographs and allowing my husband to analyze them without me getting angry. I’ll get there though. I have the passion and the drive and I love animals… from a distance. Up close I get scared and edgy. This is why I love taking pictures of animals and wildlife. Over the next few years I will invest in better equipment and proper training to take amazing pictures. Here are a few of my favorite places in the USA to view fantastic wildlife.
It’s no secret that we’re animals lovers here at TheConstantRambler. We dedicate much of our time enjoying nature, and love nothing more than taking photographs of wildlife, even when they’re not in the wild. When we found ourselves looking for some thing to do while in Pittsburgh the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium was a natural choice.
The concept of conservation and protecting Mother Nature is rather slow moving in some parts of the world. Sometimes though, there is someone that is so far ahead of their time, they don’t really even know that they are starting a movement. This holds true when you look at Asa Wright and her Asa Wright Nature Centre on the beautiful twin island nation of Trinidad and Tobago.
Pear River Eco Tours in Slidell, LA takes you buzzing through the bayou as you search the waters of the Honey Island Swamp for wildlife. It’s a must-do adventure for any animal lover, or for any first timer in the swampy South.
Ever wanted to take a safari? The Global Wildlife Center in Folsom Louisiana is like a safari in the South. Okay, so there may not be lions and cheetahs chasing herds of elephants, but you do get to see giraffes, deer, zebras, and so much more.
