Humans share habitation of Earth with an incredible variety of life.  From birds that soar, to fish that swim, rainforest toucans and desert dwellers, every location on Earth has different species inhabiting it.  Many animals avoid close contact with humans, and others are dangerous to approach, so capturing photographs of them can be quite a challenging task.  However, with some of the recent improvements in camera equipment, and the ever improving skill of the photography community, photographers have managed to take some captivating animal photographs.

We’ve gathered up 40 captivating animal photographs from these talented (and in some cases, brave) photographers who have captured the beauty of the natural world to share with us.
