The Wild Side
According to WorldAtlas, North America is home to around 457 species of mammals, 662 reptiles, more than 300 amphibians, and 914 birds. But, of course, most of us don't see wild animals on a regular basis, beyond the occasional squirrel or bird in our yard. Enter wildlife photographers, whose work gives us a glimpse into a world many of us would never otherwise see. Here are some of our favorite shots of wildlife in locations from the lower reaches of Florida to the upper expanses of Alaska.
