Father Daughter Duo Put Cicadas Into Cute Poses For Wholesome Photoshoot

We love a good news story! And we especially love when it's a family effort! The Good News Network covered the story. "The Fairfax, Virginia-based father/daughter team of Scott and Ellie Kanowitz have come up with a series of increasingly complex humorous vignettes starring the media-happy bugs interacting with a variety of toy props."

"They admit the one drawback to gently using live bug actors was that they did not always take direction well. 'Posing and building more and more elaborate schemes trying to get them to stay still and learn about the cicadas was really exciting. I think one thing we learned was that they don't like to ride on skateboards.' Scott told WTOP News."

We love learning about new and interesting species. And if we can combine that with a creative wholesome photoshoot, it's just that much better. Enjoy!

You would think that after such a long time in lockdown, our pets would finally get used to us staring at the computer screen all the time and occasionally talking to it. But this awwdorable French bulldog is the ultimate proof that they have not. It's obvious that this pupper is confused by the idea of this light box somehow being more interesting than her, and we can't blame her. 

Animals and Zoom calls are always the funniest mix. Who could ever forget the viral twitter thread about cats sitting in on Zoom calls? Iconic. This may be one of the only things that we actually liked about lockdowns. Well, that and the fact that we got to cuddle our doggos all day every day for as long as we wanted to.

Pics Capturing Why Two Cats Are Much Better Than One

We love cats, we feel like it's important to announce that at the beginning of this list. We know, we know, cats can be a whole lot to deal with - from unexpected bursts of energy at 3am, to making sure that your fresh laundry is covered in cat hairs instantly to trying to steal your food (and succeeding sometimes). 

But at the end of the day, these little felines bring so much joy into our lives. And you know what, as cat people with no sense of self-preservation and a desire to adopt every cat out there, we have come to the conclusion that two cats are better than one. For proof, you don't need to go any further than these picture. Double the trouble = double the love. Duh.
