Fridays with John: Big Animals

I just came across these great pictures from a Smithsonian nature photography contest. They're all beautifully shot and clearly capture moments that some of the photographers waited days for. A lot of them have a "shoot the picture, and run for your life" feel, but I'm guessing nice telephoto lenses afforded these photographers the relative safety of distance.

More of this exhibit and the award winners can be seen here. I think you'll agree, they're pretty amazing shots--often with imposingly big subjects.

I like their "Photo of the Day" link.

These photos are beautiful, although I'm a bit concerned about where the photographer was positioned when they took them.
