Photography is a craft that takes time to perfect. Not being a photographer myself, I admire the skill and patience of great photographers. Getting the perfect photo is a combination of skill and timing.

We've compiled a collection of photos where expert craft and lucky circumstance combined to create the perfect shot while traveling with WWF.

  • This tiger caused an exciting traffic jam in India.

  • I'm not sure who is luckier: the photographer getting up close and personal with a gentoo penguin or the person who snapped this funny photo in Antarctica.

  • While seeing a polar bear in Norway is not unusual, the photographer captured this shot just in time.

  • This photographer was lucky enough to see this sea turtle hatch in Mexico.

  • You have to keep your camera at the ready in Alaska. You never know what may jump into the frame.

  • This photographer was lucky enough to stumble upon lion cubs in Kenya.

  • This sifaka looks like it's ready to duel. If you're lucky you can see these creatures in Madagascar
