Many years people peer into the stars in searching for extraterrestrial living forms. The popular culture – movies, video clips, shows and science fiction, shows its version of them like terrifying monsters. But if you look deep in our planet’s seas and oceans, you could see considerably better prototypes for your imagination – some of the weirdest creatures actually live on the Earth. And them… you definitely wouldn’t want to meet. And still, look at some of them…
Bangkok-based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich has created an incredible series of portraits of the Siamese fighting fish, highlighting this species’ spectacular coloration and flamboyant fins.
Internet is full of pictures that make us go ‘awwww’ and ‘sooo sweet’. And there are many like me who can’t resist photographs of animals. The pictures of cute doggies, cats, elephants, tigers, lions and every other animal on the planet make us feel I-want-them-all. I spend so much of time on the Internet because I keep seeing some doggie picture and say ‘so sweet’ some million times.
This random thought occurred to me, when I was at work. How would it be if I created an album of some quirky pictures of my pet dog, my angel, my furry-friend, Calvin! How cool would it be to show-off some dainty pictures of Calvin wearing myriad of expressions! So, this blog is dedicated to my bestestest ever companion Calvin and to all animal lovers, who would love to destress seeing my cuddle-bug’s pictures!
My baby brother is 10-years-old. But he has conveniently forgotten that fact. And so, he chooses to show that puppy face and bulbous eyes quite often. We couldn’t afford to take plenty of pictures of Calvin, when he was a puppy (as in in the real sense). But these days, I leave no stone unturned to capture the melange of expressions of Calvin.
My baby always looks cute. However he looks cuter when he puts up an act to taste human food. So, I have photographed some of those moments, when Calvin fixed his big eyes on our food. He doesn’t throw tantrums or he doesn’t bark when he wants to relish our food. The little boy just sits in front of us, keeps seeing our food, drools buckets and chooses to look pitiful. So, when our friends and relatives visit us and find Calvin acting like an Oscar winner, they advise us not to starve him. But everybody doesn’t appreciate the fact that Calvin is greedy. He downs his bowl of Pedigree first before he shows us that deplorable face asking for Indian delicacies like dosai and idli. All the pictures that I have posted here were taken when his mammoth-tummy was full! Whenever I shared all these delicacies with him, he just didn’t use words to say that ‘Life is good’. But he licked me generously to thank me and tell me how much he loved these foods! So scroll down and bask in his cuteness!
Finnish photographer Perttu Saksa has created a haunting and disturbing photo series detailing animal abuse in Indonesia. His dark images are filled with small monkeys dressed in dolls’ clothing with terrifying plastic doll faces covering their own.
Sonya is a adorable dog that was living on the Los Angeles streets for a long long time. So much so that the stray dog had matted fur, a swollen lip and was forced to eat whatever she could find. Patrick Pittenger had noticed her, always on the same spot. He was feeding her and bringing her water when he could. He named the sweet girl, Sonya.
When Patrick showed on Google Maps his place of work to his girlfriend, Jennifer Velesquez, he saw to his big surprise, his friend Sonya lying on the sidewalk. He took this as a sign and decided to contact Hope For Paws, a local animal rescue group known for their amazing rescues in the L.A. area.
Patrick had considered taking Sonya home with him, but his own dog was suffering from health problems. “I would go home and just feel awful there was nothing we could do,” he told The Huffington Post.
So two days later, Eldad Hagar, co-founder of the rescue group, managed to salvage Sonya and he brought her to the local vet and later, to a dog groomer.
The vet found out that she had tumors, ingrown claws, broken teeth, suffered from arthritis and had bone spurs, also called osteophytes, on her spine. Surgical interventions were performed on Sonya. She also has regular acupuncture to help her with her osteophytes and arthritis.
