Wild Animal Couples

This album is inspired by a recent Photo of the day
It is a place for photos of Wild Animal Couples in their natural habitats.
All sorts of animals are welcome here from little critters to mammals, but they all have to be Wild and Free.
The photos need to be taken in nature and not in your backyards. No photos from zoos either, please.
It would be nice if you could include a little info about the breeding habits of the animals presented in your pictures.

We all enjoy hearing beautiful songs of birds while hiking or climbing. (Canyon Wren is my personal an all time favorite singer.)
Here is a short article about the Bird Courtship

Tips for Responsible Wildlife Photography

1. Invest in a good telephoto lens and respect animals' personal space. Watch them from a distance.
Be especially sensitive to adults with young.
2. Move slowly and allow animals to always have you in view.
Do not try to surprise them.
3. Never chase or harass wildlife; Harassment of wildlife is unlawful.
4. Be observant and considerate. If the animals appear to be stressed out by your presence, walk away.
5. Do not feed wildlife or lure them with food!
6. Keep your pets on a leash.
7. Resting is critical for many animals; don’t encourage them to do something for your camera.
8. Don't try to approach wildlife in large groups. It may seem like an attack to them.

Thank you and Happy Trails!

Fun...

Too bad about the rules; I have a naughty little picture of two crabs mating in a tidal pool on Sanibel Island!

The birds and

the bees and the flowers and the trees,
and the moon up above;
and this thing called love?

Neat little poem Larry :) Thanks.
I was looking for a cute quote for the album and couldn't find anything.
Greetings, Anya.

Not a problem! Here's another one:
"Birds do it, bees do it.
Even educated fleas do it.
Let's do it, let's fall in love."

Thank you Anya

for creating this wonderful page. I love animals, even ants, if you can believe.

Re: Thank you Anya

Hello Marc and thank you for visiting. I hope this album will grow in the future. Still not as many photos as I would like to see.
I do love ants too, but not when they get in my outdoor cat's food bowl. They don't bite at all, but for some reason freak him out anyway.
Cheers.

Re: Thank you Anya

Hi Anya,
About ants, well I don't care for the ones that attack cats and dog foods either. But, so many times I had to avoid stepping on them while rock climbibg, and it isn't always easy to do.
Happy hiking, and climbing,
Marc

Re: Thank you Anya

Yes, I go around them on the trails also. They often carry such big loads, much bigger than they are themselves. Impressive!
Happy climbing to you as well!
