Wildlife photography is always exciting for a lot of photographers. They feel fulfilled whenever they are able to take an amazing photo that they can show to the rest of the world. People do not realize that this can also be dangerous. Fernando Monclova is one example of a wildlife photographer who has died because of taking photos.

He tried to take a close up picture of elephants and he was trampled to death. A lot of wildlife photographers know that there are different risks that they have to take whenever they try to take photos. The best thing to do is to become discreet and to make sure that animals will not feel threatened in any way.
