Most of the animals you see in these photographs are extremely hard to view in the wild. The only alternative then is to visit farms where these animals are available as captive subjects. They offer an opportunity for the enthusiast photographer that is simply impossible in the wild. These animals are raised at the farm from cubs and although docile enough to allow proximity to humans, they are far from harmless. Despite being captive they are well cared for. For the wildlife enthusiast they serve as models and encourage the photographer to visit them in their natural habitats.
