[Photos] Timing Is Everything: Animal Photography

Animal photography requires a great deal of time, patience, and let's just say it ... it takes a bit of luck. This post has some of the best examples of perfectly timed animal photos which seem like pure luck. Most of these shots are so incredible that if you blinked you would have missed it! But as a popular saying goes, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” What about you? What part does luck play in your photography? via BoredPanda

The first image in this series wasn't a result of perfect timing. I happened to read the shooter's explanation of it, and he states that he happened across this scene, and that he watched them locked  in that pose for over two hours. 

Also, this kind of thing is getting more and more common on FStoppers, and it doesn't belong. These "AMAZING EXMAPLES OF STUFF I GOT FROM FLICKR" posts are lame as hell, and as I've said before, I come to Fstoppers to be either entertained or educated. This provides neither. 

It wouldn't be so bad if you actually researched any of these shots or scrutinised them slightly before you throw them up. 

Good Work Man!! I Like! nuf sed :)
