Friendship by Kirsten Bruening

Friendship is a connection that overcomes all obstacles. Friendship means to accept and love all one person with all good and bad qualities. Friendship knows no racism, friendship does not distinguish between different skin colors, languages or religions. True friendship is one of the greatest gifts that we receive in life. If the friendship is genuine, the distance between two people does not matter. In good times and in bad!

Tree Sparrow on Black Mulberry by Sarvenaz Saadat

In late January, it was very cold, heavy snow had fallen, I had left home for winter photography and I saw a tree sparrow sitting alone on tree in a park of Mehrshahr, Karaj. Tree sparrow is one of frequent bird species in Iran. Sparrows are birds that are usually overlooked but I have always loved and photographed them and will do so.

Small Tit by Hanks Tseng

In spring, it is the season of birds and flowers, and the family goes to the mountains to enjoy the flowers. A small small tit is flying between the trees. It is probably because of the fact that in the mountains, humans are rarely seen, so they are not afraid of people. Watching me take a camera and shoot it, is this posture good?

Evening Bird by Deep Mahakal

When the sun of arises, the singing bird comes from nowhere and made my day. Proper focal length is required for shooting sun rays and the low angle shot made the photo amazing. I love birds, tiny little creatures not afraid to fall down, its a woodpecker baby learning to fly

Green-Backed Tit in a Winter Morning by Sarthak Pattanaik

It was a winter morning and was very cold outside. I wanted to go outside to see some beautiful landscapes. I could hear the birds were singing songs, but due to cold and fever, I was not able to go. I was watching the outside view from my bedroom window when I noticed this little bird on a branch, quickly opened my bag and took this photo.

Madagascar by Kirsten Bruening

This beautiful giraffe we could admire during a trip to the “Cologne Zoo”. Giraffes with a weight of 800 kg reach a speed of around 60 km / h. Giraffes are very famous since the movie Madagascar. Who did not enchant Melman with his clumsiness? By the way, giraffes have a blue tongue because the color protects them from the sun.
