Photo Essay: Wildlife

This week's photo essay's theme is wildlife. Sometimes there's nothing more amazing than seeing wildlife in their natural habitat.

I’m really excited for my second photo essay series with the theme of wildlife. When traveling, I love beautiful vistas, amazing architecture, impressive cityscapes and local food, but one thing I also love is the wildlife. I don’t do that many off the beaten path trips, so wildlife isn’t something that I see nearly as much as someone who might camp or go hiking or backpack through Asia.

However, I’ve seen some pretty awesome wildlife over the past couple of years, whether it was in Australia, the US or even Asia. Although I have to say, it took a lot of self-control to not just include a million photos of koalas and wallabies in this post.

  • Love that starfish shot! Where we live, we see monkeys everyday, they can be quite a bit of a nuisance–but in a photo, they look pretty cool. I just don’t like them on my car, haha!

    • Thanks, Rachel! Hahaha that just made me laugh real hard. They are definitely a nuisance. One tried to open my purse and another tried to steal my sunglasses. I can’t even imagine actually living with them every day!

  • Such amazing pictures 🙂 That kangaroo was looking right at you. I love when animals do that.

    • Me too! It was awesome. He (or she) was just sitting there looking right at me chewing away at the grass, it was so cool.

  • Lynda@fitnessmomwinecountry

    Hanna, what amazing photos. You have seen some beautiful places no doubt.

    • Thank you, Lynda! I love these photos because they remind me of the all the cool and exotic places I’ve been and amazing things I’ve seen.

  • Elizabeth Johnson

    These photos are so beautiful! Animals are stunning! Thank you for sharing.

    • Thanks, Elizabeth! They really are, no doubt. It always makes it even more spectacular to see something more exotic in the wild rather than a zoo as well.

  • Great photos!! Looks like an amazing place!!

    • Thank you, Rachel! All of the places these photos were taken in were awesome places 🙂

    You took all of those! That is so amazing, I wish I could see just some of those in person. I would love to go to Australia someday, but studying it with my kids will suffice for now.

    • Thank you, Terryn! It is such an incredible country, if you ever have the opportunity you totally should.

  • Beautiful photos! I love the starfish and the black swan!

    • Thank you, Lauren! The black swans were so pretty but pretty evil! Lol.
