If you like wild animals or if you are simply into photography, you might be interested in the best wildlife pictures 2012. With this in mind you should know that while sometimes taking such photos requires a lot of preparations, it is possible for them to be taken by mistake.
This photo was taken by a group of volunteers in Costa Rica.

Elephants and queleas
This is a magnificent picture of 2012. It shows how a herd of elephants disturbed hundreds of queleas. These are really tiny birds, of only about 10 grams, but since they were so many they looked like they were much bigger.
