Unique Wildlife Photography From Smithsonian's Annual Photo Contest

Wildlife photography is so amazing. Just like no person is exactly the same, the same goes for wildlife. They all have different environments they live in, they have their own unique personalities which in turn makes every single one unique. That is why when photographing wildlife, you never know what you will find or what you will come up with in the end.  

Every year the Smithsonian has their annual photo contest and we wanted to share with you a few unique wildlife photos from the submissions that poured in during their 13th Annual Photo Awards that we saw on the Mother Nature Network. We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
