Wildlife Photos Taken at the Perfect Moment (13 photos)

Canadian photographer Scott Linstead goes to great lengths to capture shots of wildlife at the perfect moment.

The 33-year-old photographer and former teacher spends up to a week arranging the lighting and phototraps which trigger the camera and flash. The human eye and reaction speed on the shutter release button are rarely quick enough to take the photos manually. Some of these pictures were taken in the wild, while others were staged on his kitchen table, in a warehouse, or pet shop

“Recognizing the moment that is critical in any animal behavior is easy enough – choosing the proper technique and applying it is the challenge,” says Linstead. “Using the phototrap, I can not only photograph the elusive but also the unimaginably quick. I overcome the limitation of human reaction time and endurance for photographing phenomena that occur once a day and on no particular schedule.”
