Travel Photography Tip: Local Wildlife at Eye Level

I think the most common wildlife photos I see are of ducks and pigeons (animals you'd normally see at a park or random tourist attraction). It's fine to take pictures of them; but rather than shooting down at them, try shooting at their eye level (like I did here). I know, I know -- I used a photo of something that was so big it just had to be at eye level with me, but, still, I waited until the hippopotamus submerged before snapping it. This technique also works wonders when photographing tall animals or creatures normally high up (because of it's rare vantage point). So be prepared to go really high or low. ;)
