Animals are in plenty and all anybody needs is a lot of patience and love for them.

I have noticed that if you spend more time trying to watch animals, they become accustomed to your presence, are more comfortable in your presence, and are also curious. In my experience, all animals can recognize people. Since I have spent a lot of time trying to become friendly with them, this has helped me to take great photos of them in their natural habitat.
