Consider the whole scene, more specifically, the wildlife within their environment. Not only is it important to understand your wildlife's environment, showing its habitat in your photos (using a wide-angle lense) will tell an important part to your story, like how your wildlife lives, or what is happening to their environment. It also gives you a chance to show off your composition skills.
Seasonal change and temperamental conditions can completely change the look and feel of your photographs, as well as how wildlife will behave. Planning for the weather, time of day, the time of year, as well as the variance among all three, will help you not only prepare for your shoots, but help you feel more in control and aware.
