11 Adorable Portraits of Baby Animals

Animal photographers need to be prepared for the unknown. They need to study the behavior and language of animals to know their every move. Shooting with long telephoto lenses from a distance is often the most practical technique. This way animals are not disturbed and we can capture a real and natural scene. But sometimes just using the same rules you’d use for a human portrait is the most effective method. Below we feature 11 beautiful examples of baby animal portraits:
