As fascinating as nature and wildlife photography can be, there are often beautiful and unforgettable things that happen behind the lens as well. Usually, these can only be enjoyed by the photographers themselves, but occasionally, we're lucky enough to have a second photographer on the scene to capture these special moments. These photos are some of the weirdest, funniest, scariest and most beautiful moments that we've ever seen behind the scenes in nature and wildlife photography.

If you've ever captured a special moment behind the scenes, we'd love to see it. Please share it with us by adding it to this list – and upvote your favorites, too!

This one is kinda awfully sad. This poor oran-goutan should be in nature not prisoner behind a glass waiting for people to either laugh at him and make silly faces to him or to show some compassion to him.

One-minute Attack - One Mosquito

Report

3 years ago

In Hungary, a small "Zagyva" River shore (near the town of Szolnok), in the summer, very many of the mosquito. It's easy photography - but it should be a good macro lens. I sit on the grass, and my knee soon pass the mosquito.
