Endangered Rhinos: New Stunning Photographs From Kenya

Below are 8 stunning and intimate photographs of white rhinos, taken with a BeetleCam at Solio Lodge wildlife conservancy, Kenya. 

The powerful images taken by British photographer, Will Burrard-Lucas, are part of his latest wildlife series. 

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, black rhinos are labeled as "critically endangered," and Southern white rhinos are "near threatened."

With a long lens, Burrard-Lucas' traveled around Kenya, and found black rhinos to be "very shy and elusive," he tells CNN Travel

While he found white rhinos to be the opposite, claiming they were "quite sociable animals."

"It's a very different experience being able to actually see them while I'm photographing them," he says. "That was a wonderful experience to be able to see that calf and mother going about their daily life."

Check out the extraordinary images below:

Photographer Gains The Trust Of Squirrels And Takes Photos Of Their Adorable Interactions

Mr. Geert Wegge is a nature photographer since 2013 and looking at his work would leave you asking "How did he do it" as each photo is a masterpiece, telling a story.  

His amazing works include photographing wild squirrels in their most unique, magical, and playful nature.
Around 6 years ago, Weggen came across a fox in his doorstep. After giving him food to eat, the little fox started coming back to his balcony. After a few weeks, this fox started playing with Weggen's photography props. Soon after, birds and squirrels followed.

The red squirrels at his photos look like pro models and after months of gaining their trust, he has managed to photoshoot them in adorable and creative settings like riding a toy dragon, playing chess, eating a small cone of ice cream etc. 

When asked how he comes up with his amazing photography ideas, he explained to My Modern Mat: "I have always been a fantasist, a dreamer. Most of the time I see things that were not there according to the people around me. I would say they were wrong. The world is a big place for dreaming and fantasy. It is one big wonder. Ideas come the whole the time and they seem to never stop". 

He even built an entire outdoor studio made out of wood, trees, and of course plants. Geert has his little secret in luring the squirrels into his beautiful outdoor studio: "Food. Mostly it is about that. If I did not have food they would not come."

Check out some of his adorable photos below. For more, look into his Instagram page as well as his Facebook page.

Photographer Beautifully Captures The Purity of Doggo Maternity Shoots

Is there anything more darling than a maternity shoot? Sure there is! If your model just happens to be a loyal, pure of heart, good girl two-year-old Dachshund named Sugar! 

Sugar is expecting her first litter and who better to capture the moment than Washington-based photographer Laura Shockley? Laura Shockley specializes in maternity, as well as, newborn shoots. She made headlines last year due to her gasp-worthy shot of a newborn ecstatically outstretching his arms, as if thrilled to have finally arrived into this world.

Now, Shockley is sharing her newest photo-shoot via Facebook featuring a pregnant pup! "This little momma is going to grace us with some short legged puppers soon! I can not wait for the next milestone session for her, the grandmother (me) 'purchased' her the maternity/newborn package!," Laura wrote. 

Shockley told PopSugar that Sugar is, "getting close to the end of her pregnancy and we took her for a day filled with pup cups and peanut butter treats, [and] it ended with her maternity session. If people can feel special on their photo shoot days, so can Sugar!"

We are definitely on-board with that! 

Complete with images of Sugar rocking a flower crown and tulle, and surrounded by a field of flowers, here is Sugar's gorgeous and one-of-a-kind photo-shoot:

Photographer Places Giant Cats In Photos With Himself And It's Something Out Of A Ghibli Movie

You can say that the artist, Petechka Odnobokov (Peter, for short), is larger than life! Peter places these images of giant cats (who you may have seen circulating the interwebs) in urban, and not so urban landscapes. A man with glasses and a beard is also present in each and every photo, this is Peter himself! 

Peter is always looking at ease and relaxed in the pics as the giant felines roam about (or nap about). Peter writes under one of the photos, a photo with cats is a peculiar way of communicating with the world around him. This allows you to draw a bridge between his total isolation from childhood and the outside world with other people.

The world he has created is certainly better than our reality!
