Wonderful Photos of the Wild Animals - Part 1

British photographer Jonathan Griffiths who now lives in Montana, USA spent 15 months to complete this project. He woke up at 5.30 a.m. every day and went on the search for wild animals. Jonathan was spending days attracting animals with chicken meat and at the end he could get so close to the animal and make these wonderful photos of lions, tigers, leopards, bears and cougars.

Jonathan said: "At first I was quite nervous being so close to the animals as I did not know what to expect and they are wild. Scariest moment came when I came face-to-face with a black leopard, which made me fear for my life and I thought it could attack at any moment. My family think I'm a bit nuts and worry about the consequences if something went wrong. But I just like getting as close as possible to get a different kind of shot."
