Tip: Marina Cano’s Pictures of cute and playful wild animals


Domesticated four-legged animals rank among the most popular subjects – the web is virtually full of cat and dog pictures. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of wild animals. They are considerably less frequently photographed, mostly in deadly serious or threatening poses. Photos like this don’t particularly contribute to preserving wild animals and their habitat. At least not in the age of “Hello Kitty” we currently seem to live in. Definitely missing are the playful and cuddly moments that are the order of the day even for wild animals. Especially focusing on this tender and cute side of wild fauna is Spanish photographer Marina Cano. Somehow she succeeds in getting shots of those animals not renowned for their playful or cuddly behavior, or ones that are supposed to be particularly dangerous or shy.
