It's time for Periodic Deviant Feature #2 (shortened to P.D.F. so I can squeeze the photographers' names into the title ;) ). I wanted to dip into the *wild* side of wildlife photography this time around, and while there are many incredible wildlife photographers out there, two of the names at the top of my personal list are :iconmorkelerasmus: and :iconjamie-macarthur: .

Morkel Erasmus specializes in African wildlife and has a wonderful eye for interesting composition. He has an amazing ability to capture unique poses and perspectives that give personality and insight into his subjects, really raising his work to a whole new level. A select few of his photographs can be seen below, but I highly suggest giving his gallery a visit.

Jamie MacArthur's work is no less spectacular, and it shows a degree of technical mastery that is really astounding. He focuses primarily on birds, in particular the Common Kingfisher, and over the past several years, he has captured some truly breathtaking shots. Again, I highly recommend a visit to his gallery, as I can't fit all the awesome here. :)

More features in a few weeks! Hopefully, I will eventually get to some deviants who aren't already super popular. ;) Until then, enjoy!

Just leaving this here, in case your mentions are turned off.

I've just now stumbled upon your incredible gallery. I was curious if there will be an Mountain Lion / Cougar pictures coming in the near future?
robbobert Mar 26, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks for the compliment. :) Glad you liked my gallery. I would absolutely love to add some cougar photos to my gallery, but I've had really terrible luck finding any to photograph. If I ever do get the chance though, you can bet I'll be posting them ASAP. :D

No problem! Then in that case, I'll just have to add you to my watch! I wouldn't want to miss any of them. Besides, I'll get to see plenty of other astonishing photographs while I wait. Tigers are also in my top three favorite animals, so I'll definitely have something to mesmerize till that time comes.

You take beautiful models (I especially like the jaguar) and turn then into beautiful pictures. Great job

Thank you. :) It has been a lot of patience over a lot of years, so I'm definitely happy to have gotten some shots to be proud of. :) Glad you liked my gallery.
