Wildlife photography is probably one of the most patience-testing passions and art. Ask any wildlife photographer about the story behind his/her captured shot and they will tell you about the hours they have spent in the jungle for one perfect shot, for that one breathtaking moment.

Their pictures are visual treats, reciting tales from the jungles. These beautifully captured images and moments of the wildlife in their natural habitat will certainly want you to be in the wild to experience it all by yourself.

So, if you are one who does not mind your Instagram feed being overloaded with images of wildlife including tigers, leopards, black panthers, birds and more, just like the person who has penned this article, then you must follow these some of the best wildlife photographers of the country.
