First it was dogs under water, then it was dogs shaking their bones and cats jumping through the air, later on dogs catching a goodie and the most recent idea that’s fascinated animal fans from all around the world is called “Dogs seen from below”. Sometimes I really wonder why I don’t also have such great ideas. 😉

True friendship doesn’t only exist between human-beings but also in the world of animals. I’m convinced of that. Gregarious animals in particular, which include dogs as well, often have intense social relationships with each other. The story of such a friendship is the one of Harlow, the Weimaraner bitch, and her friends. And it all started with the basset bitch Sage.
It was time for me again to leave home for exploring unknown, faraway places. As you already know me, my camera and me are used to simply hop on the next train, bus or plane in order to travel to other countries.
This time, through mere coincidence than big considerations, we travelled to China. (I would like to thank at this point all the travel websites that enabled me to find very easily the best offers in such a short time).
For most people Antarctica remains a mystery. Only few of us have been there already or could possibly imagine traveling there one day. Because rationally speaking Antarctica definitely isn’t a cozy place for human-beings. Barren, cold and inhospitable. It certainly wasn’t on Mother Nature’s mind to make human-beings settle on the South Pole and so they never did. Until today people only go to the South Pole in order to do some research there. However, it’s very different with creatures living in Antarctica. Such as penguins. They feel very well in Antarctica and live there in big colonies.
Alex Bernasconi, a world-renowned and successful wildlife photographer from Italy, in his amazing pictures of Antarctica shows us how incredibly big and fascinating these penguin colonies really are.
Konsta Punkka. In our area quite an unusual name of an unusual 21-year-old guy from Finland. In journals and magazines as well as in diverse articles and online blogs he’s been celebrated as an animal whisperer with a camera and as a wildlife photographer who can look into the soul of an animal for a couple of months now. His Instagram account reflects the success of the subtle emotionality that characterizes Konsta’s wildlife pictures as it currently has 940,000 followers – a number that’s constantly growing.
“Small kids & big dogs” is the title of a heart-warming photo project on which Andy Seliverstoff has been working for some time. In this project he wants to show the connection of little human-beings with their pets.
For some weeks I’ve been searching for winter desperately, for some snow on the trees, for some icicles hanging down the rooftops, for children walking through the winter landscape wearing snowshoes or trailing their toboggans. All I’ve found so far was sad sceneries, barren meadows and anything else but a winter fairytale atmosphere.
As I fell into my bed exhausted yesterday evening and dared to glimpse out of the window before closing my eyes, the image was totally different from this morning. During the night snow finally surprised us for the first time this winter. I was happy like a little child the way I always get happy when everything is white.
It’s nothing new, that animals on Instagram are a huge success. We already told you about Mack the Pug and Gandalf the cat which travel the world and bring in a lot of money for their owners while doing that. Today we want to tell you about another furry star of Instagram: Pumpkin the Raccoon.
Who doesn’t know him? Pippi Longstocking’s Mr. Nilsson. Mr. Nilsson was played by a squirrel monkey, a tender little primate you can normally find in large groups in the warm regions of Central and South America. Well – my present financial situation doesn’t allow me to travel to a Latin American summer but it was good enough to visit the zoo in town.
