Animal Photo Extravaganza

Now that I’m writing a book about animals, I get to pretend that perusing cute critter photos online counts as productive work. And I don’t know what’s in the water, but lately, the world’s animal photographers have been churning out some brilliant work. Below, some of my favorite finds:

Elderly Animals

These photographs of creatures nearing the end of their lives are surprisingly moving. (Photographer Isa Leshko has more on her website.)

The Exultant Ark

The New York Times has put together a slideshow of images from the new book The Exultant Ark: A Pictorial Tour of Animal Pleasure. Wired also has an excerpt from the book.

Life in Antarctica

These early 20th century images of Antarctic expeditions include some great shots of penguins, elephant seals, and sled dogs.

Ape Portraits

Volker Gutgesel takes candid shots of the simian residents of the Frankfurt Zoo.
