  • Shelter Dog Photobooth

    These pictures are all part of a wonderful project by the Humane Society of Utah, an animal rescue and adoption group in the U.S..  The project was started to present the dogs in a better light and give them more positive exposure.  The venture seems to be working well with the dogs garnering a lot […]

    Markedly Different

    Blemishes, birthmarks, scars, and freckles, they’re just some of the distinguishing characteristics that make us different from each other. Whether you love or loathe your unusual quirks and “markings”, just remember that they make you who you are and that makes you special, and ultimately, unique.

Incredibly, a drop of water can be thrown from an animal’s fur during shaking at acceleration of between 10-70 times gravity! Wouldn’t it be nice to make do […]

  • Paradise Found

    The beauty and splendour of the Bird of Paradise can leave one almost lost for words.  The rarity of these beauties makes them extremely special, and it was only in 2003 that all 39 species were finally photographed and documented.  It took the gentlemen who finally completed the task a total of 8yrs, 18 expeditions […]
