I love incorporating the landscape into a wildlife photo...and if not the entire landscape, perhaps just a sense and context of the subject's environment. I think we often get too focused on getting so close to our subjects that we end up taking shots that could have been taken anywhere, even in a zoo or other controlled setting.

The Mountain Zebra National Park near Cradock in South Africa provides awesome backdrops to incorporate into your "wider" wildlife photos.

The Cape Mountain Zebra is an endangered species which as been saved from the brink of extinction by the establishment of parks like this.
