Wildlife Stock Pictures - Pg1

The wildlife and nature stock pictures on this page won't cost you a thing. They can be downloaded and used, ideally for web sites, digital presentations, and as reference for art - all under a royalty-free license.

The pictures are approximately 800 pixels on the longest side. I am offering them at no charge because of the many requests I get from people needing stock images as inspiration for art work, for web sites, for college projects, and for slide shows.

To download any of the pictures below, click on the thumbnail to open the full-size image, then right-click to save to a folder of your choice. By downloading any images, you acknowledge that you've read and understand the Terms of Use set out further below.

The pictures may only be used on web sites with a functioning link back to this site. Please don't give your visitors permission to download the images - keep it legal and send them here instead.

Things you MAY NOT do with wildlife stock pictures from this site:

  • Sell, exchange, or in any way distribute any of the photos, whether in the form of digital images, photographic prints, or in any form of template;
  • Sell the original images in a different guise. In other words, the photograph should not constitute the main value of the end-product. Please note this restriction DOES apply to screensavers and wallpapers, unless you create them for your own personal use.
  • Use any images from this site for illegal or fraudulent purpose or to promote pornographic and/or obscene material.

About Royalty-Free Images
Please understand that photographs are intellectual property and as such the ownership of the picture remains with the photographer. What is being granted is a licence to use the picture.

Many stock photographs are sold for a specific purpose, for example reproduction in a particular issue of a magazine. This is known as a Traditional or Rights-Managed licence and the image cannot be used for any other purpose.

A royalty-free licence on the other hand entitles the buyer to use the stock picture an unlimited number of times in (nearly) unlimited ways.

Note however that restrictions vary from license to license and some will not allow use of the pictures for printing on mugs or T-shirts, or for screensavers and creation of your own art ("derivative use"). So always check the license or terms of use carefully before you rush in and sign up with a subscription-based stock photo site or buy pictures for a dollar each from some of the budget sites.

Bottom line with the pictures on this page - you can download them at no cost, with a royalty free license, but the copyright remains with the photographer and ownership does not pass to you. So please don't try to sell the pictures or distribute them in any way!
