The 50 Best Animal Photos Of 2011


I am so envious of people who know photography.  I lack an artistic side and it shows not only in my pictures I take but my poor video editing.  I have an attention span of a gnat and really should learn to take the time to read and learn more about how to be a better photographer and videographer.  When I come across pictures of nature, animals of any kind that make an impression on me I feel I need to share them.  #47 breaks my heart. Enjoy!

Culture Buzz Here’s a collection of the best animal photojournalism of the year. It was a sad, funny, but overall cute year for animal photos.
