Animals are an incredible source of action. Whether it’s a favorite family pet or exotic creatures on the hunt, animals give us amazing action shots. Animals in their element — and out of their element — provide us with funny, cute, and thought-provoking material for magazine ads, postcards, posters, and even web design.

But it can be a challenge capturing all of that energy. Animals do not stay in one moment of action for long, especially when a photographer is trying so hard to take the perfect picture. In this collection, we celebrate creations of creatures in action and applaud the photographers who manage to snap that shot at just the right moment. Let these photos inspire you to greatness in your own photographs
