'Love them! I'll add them. I can't believe I forgot about my beloved gorillas; I love those animals.At the zoo, looking into their eyes, two inches away, with only glass separating us, takes my breath away: it's like looking into the eyes of a soul just like me. And to see a five year-old gorilla trace, with his finger on the glass, the matchbox car moved around on the glass by a human five year-old is the meaning of beautiful. To watch that connection is haunting in the best of ways.

Indeed. I couldn't find any images of animals in 'Out of Africa' on IMDb, though. There's one from 'Born Free' on the list but I may remove it because, although, the cub is adorable, the photo isn't great and it's very unclear as a small poll-size image: the woman can be seen but the cub is not easily or clearly seen.It's a shame because both movies had some great photography.

I love that one, too. That film, Kedi, is so good, like nothing else out there, and chalk-full of amazing images, great insights from people about cats and the city in which they live together, and powerful, as well as hilarious, footage of cats doing their thing.

Of course but this is a series of polls and there are relatively few photos of non-human animals compared to humans; there will be at least a few polls of humans because there are so many photos of humans in movies. I do like that the order to which we belong is shown there: It's rather unsettling how few people know that we're primates and, indeed, great apes.

Thank you, so much, Joe. I added then removed the birds because in a small poll-size box, it looked like just a blur and not a particularly artistic blur, lol. I added the others, though (that tiger: wow, how beautiful) and the photo gallery of 'Life of Pi' was like a treasure trove. 'Much gratitude.

Oh my gosh, these are so good. Thank you, Narnia. The photo of the wolf from 'Alpha' is a great photograph and that's what I wanted for this poll: great pictures of animals that were also exquisite photography. That one capured both.Oh, and the tiger from 'Two Brothers' Is so beautiful that it's heartbreaking; that tiger's expression exhibits so much awareness, depth, and emotion. I've rarely seen that much expression from any creature, including human beings. It's not what you expect from a big cat, especially when there cubs aren't around. It took my breath away. 

And that smaller bear is just adorable. :)

I'm excluding animation, though, so I didn't include the sabertooth. The others were all added, though, and among my favorites. What a world and how empty and blank it would feel without non-human animals. These images of yours drive that home, wow.

Oh my gosh, Breu, I knew that was you. I think I had just left Narnia a post on another thread and the name was in my brain. Please forgive me. 

Elephants are so smart and when I was an undergrad, I helped a professor do research on helping elephants to mate in captivity. They're so smart and the smarter the animal, generally the less that they mate in captivity. It's so important for the species, though, that they mate in captivity because they're so close to extinction in the wild. The point of all of that is that I'm definitely going to use this photo as long as it translates to the little boxes that we have for poll images. 

Btw, did you know that elephants have culture? 'Fascinating, no? As far as biologists and zoologists know, the elephant is the only land mammal, outside of the great apes, including humans, of course, that have culture. I'm not sure what is known about birds or sea mammals. And elephants are matriarchal, which rocks, lol. Ideally, I'm a fan of fraternity/sorority over patriarchy or matriarchy but I'll take what I can get. :)

I added it but then realized that they are extinct so it must be CGI. I should have listed my inclusion and exclusion criteria because part of the focus here is on the quality of the photography, as well as the real animal, so I'm excluding animation and computer graphics. Thank you for the suggestion, though. I'm going to have to delete several anyway because the list is already at 40. What a neat looking bird, though.

Richard Parker is in CGI 85% of the time, and when the actor was on the boat they didn't use a real tiger because it was too dangerous. The other animals are all fake for example de orangutan.

Oh, yeah. I guess that was wishful thinking on my part, although because I'm against using most animals in film, especially wild animals, I'm so glad about that but what's weird is that I knew that the tiger was not practical and I don't know if it was my recent meningitis that dulled my mind or that I loved the pictures so much that I suppressed what I knew. Oh well, at least I know which ones to omit to get the number down to 35. Thanks for reminding me. 

(Fifteen minutes later, lol...) Although because I just read the article and researched it a bit more, at least one of the tiger shots might stay on the list since, for shots of the tiger alone, a real tiger was, in-fact, used. Since tigers are highly endangered, I'll keep any I can.

Oh, the cat in 'Captain Marvel' is adorable but the photograph isn't anything special so since I already have over 35, I'm not going to include that one, which is hard because I adore cats and think they are endlessly fascinating and, in many ways, superior to us (and not just physically superior). I could go on and on about them and often do, lol.

The second photo from 'Hachi' is also really compelling: the dog is beautiful and adorable and his expression shows the depth of emotion and intelligence that dogs, especially bigger dogs, possess. I'm going to add it for those reasons but it may get cut just because I unfortunately am going to have to cut some to get down to 35. You know how it is. Ugh.

Thanks, ACT 1. I can't include Godzilla because it's not a real animal and think I'll leave dinosaurs out because I decided at the beginning I'd only include actual photography of actual animals: no CGI or animation or such things. That also gives me pause about Jaws because it was a mechanical replica of a shark.

Thank you, though, and I hope you understand the parameters, which I now really have to adhere to because I have a lot more than 35 on the list at this point.

I wonder if that could be considered "behind the scenes." I'm working on a poll of images from behind-the-scenes." Well, since I'm making the list, I can draw those parameters so I say yes, lol. Would you mind if I used it for that list?

Oh, do you have an IMDb link for it?
