Striking Microscopic Insect Photography By Pavan Kumar

Talented photographer, Pavan Kumar, is able to capture what one might consider impossible... the beauty of insects. For many people, insects just make us feel squeamish. It's a fair assumption to say many people just don't like bugs. At all. And truth be told, I am one of those people. 

Yet, Pavan Kumar has somehow taken these mesmerizing images with such striking colors, you can't help but stop and marble at the beauty that is obviously there. It's a beauty you can't see until you see it. 

We had the opportunity to ask Kavan the simple question, "Why bugs?" Out of everything in the world to photograph, why these tiny creatures most don't care about? Pavan Kumar responded saying, "Insects are the most ignored creatures, thanks to their size. We see colourful birds, elephants, tigers, and lions in wallpapers and HD image galleries, but none of the insects! They're amazing creatures too. They look beautiful too. Let's show the world what is seldom seen!"

Pavan Kumar has accomplished just that, showing the world what is seldomly seen. See more of Pavan Kumar's insanely beautiful photographs on his Instagram

Stock Photography Images On How To Be A Feminist

Feminism: I mean, what is it really? As far as I'm aware, it is the advocacy for and the belief that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men. Therefore a feminist is someone who holds by and supports these beliefs. But what does that look like in real life? How can one prepare themselves to spot a feminist when they meet one? Thanks to a few google searches and some good ol' stock photography, we have the answer. It turns out you can recognize an empowered woman through several discerning features, including the boxing gloves she will always have on and the various cliffs and ladders she is continuously climbing — always wearing business attire.  Check out these and a few other telltale signs in the pictures below what feminists look like according to stock photography. Thank God for feminism!

Photographer Takes Pictures Of Famous Landmarks Facing The Wrong Direction

Whenever anyone visits a famous landmark, the first thing they do is take a picture of themselves standing in front of it or just of the site itself. Imagine how many pictures there are out there of the same places, from slightly different angles, but all showing the same thing. But what happens if you have a different perspective, and choose to do something a little, well... backward? Photographer Oliver Curtis decided to mix things up when he visited famous places and took his photos from the wrong direction. He wanted to "turn around, and see a new aspect of the over-photographed sites of the world - to gaze elsewhere and to favor the incidental over the monumental." His collection of pictures seeks to draw attention to the fact that "It is easy to forget that these attractions are also places of work, staffed by janitors, security guards, cleaners and office guards who have a lack of awe born from daily exposure. Yet, despite not being present, the images are still suffused with their aura."

Check out the incredible pictures below, and see how many you would recognize if the names weren't written in!

Artist Travels To Beautiful Locations To Paint The Pattern of His Own Shirt

Art is a difficult topic to dicsuss because it's all a matter of taste; what one person finds beautiful, another person finds vulgur. It's all relative. But you know what isn't as relative? Humor. OK, it is, but what you're about to see is objectivally funny. Artist Hank Schmidt in der Beek and photographer Fabian Schubert have started a project where they travel to beautifully scenic locations, set up an easel and begin to paint. But Hank doesn't paint what he sees. No, he paints the design of the shirt he is wearing, while Fabiamn photographs him doing it. This hysterical take on classic outdoor painting gave us a laugh, so we thought we'd share it with you. Enjoy!

2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Award Finalists

2020 has been one rocky year but luckily, in the world of animals, it's never been better! Since the beginning of the pandemic, it was the Earth and animals that have benefited from the lack of us humans destroying the world. 

And with the yearly competition, Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, we're further able to celebrate the magic that is animals, majestic or not. The incredible photographers that have been selected for this year's finalists have really delivered some animal gems! The following photos, captured at the moment, are hysterical and show us all that we're not alone when it comes to looking funny when our photos are taken! 

We were able to talk to Michelle, the head of Comedy Wildlife Photography Award's press office, and asked about the process of narrowing down so many wonderful photographs into the top finalists, she had this to say about the process, "... it is a brutal process. We started with over 7000 images - and whittled them down based on: level of humour, quality of photography, ability to get people's attention. It sounds relatively vague the last point, but we want to get our message of conservation across to as many people as possible, and the images must attract their attention!"

Well, these photographs selected definitely capture our attention! 

The winners will be announced on October 22nd, but the following images are all winners in our eyes! Congrats to all the photographers who made it to the finals and thank you for sharing such imagery with us -- we all could use this fantastic pick-me-up!

Long-Eared Jerboa Is The Cutest Rodent With Rabbit-Like Ears

Recently, we've been on a tiny animal kick, featuring the adorable dik-dik's, or how about those insanely cute Japanese dwarf flying squirrels? 

Well, we're continuing this cuteness run with another uncommonly known animal that deserves your attention: the long-eared jerboa! The long-eared jerboa is a rare nocturnal rodent that is very mouse-like. However, unlike a mouse, it has long hind legs (much like a kangaroo) and comically (and adorably) long ears. Oh, and it also has a miniature snout that resembles a pig. 

Be honest, have you ever seen a cuter mouse/rabbit/kangaroo/piglet mix? We didn't think so!

Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words

Some pictures are impossible to capture in just a few words, the stories behind them are far too fascinating. Week by week, we bring you a collection of photos just like these. 

When it comes to pictures that are worth more than 1000 words, there is complexity. It's not just that these pictures are beautiful, which they are, but we also see the story behind them - the emotions, the atmosphere, the endless possible situations which might have led to the pictures being taken. They could be funny, heartwarming, or awe-inspiring. They might make you smile, or they might make you think. What's for sure is that there is no way we could sum them up in anything less than 1000 words.

Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (24 Images)

What does a picture being worth more than 1000 words mean? If you think about it, 1000 words is a lot. It's enough to have a juicy description and a few metaphors and would really get your imagination flowing. Yet, sometimes, images don't need any words at all. It's all about emotion, how you feel when you glance upon them. Most often than not, you'll be creating your own story for the image and that's just as beautiful. 

These images hold a lot of heart, something that's not captured in your everyday photo. 

If you want to be left even more speechless, check out last week's photos

Welcome To The Dark Side: Animal Edition

All these animals only have one thing in common... besides being animals, of course, they all look as if they've turned to the dark side. And we gotta say, the dark side looks pretty darn badass. Maybe we'll transition, too. 

Whether it's due to melanistic or partially melanistic, or just having unusual striking (and slightly demonic) features, these animals are flat out awesome and we want to join their crew.

Photographer Captures Mesmerizing Photos of 'Dogs in Action'

If there is one thing dogs love, it's a good game of fetch. A game of catch. And a good game of frisbee. 

When they see you with that ball, stick, or frisbee their world lights up. They get excited and can't wait to run at top speed, leap and catch. And we love watching it. Watching that moment of pure intensity as they leap to catch whatever it was that we threw. But, in a blink of an eye, they are down on the ground and racing towards us to play again, waiting for us to through it again, and us waiting to see them in action. 

Thankfully, we have Photographer Claudio Piccoli who has brilliantly mastered and gifted us with beautiful images of dogs in action

 Piccoli, who is from Italy, stated on his site that he "originally got into dog photography because of {his} passion for dogs first. " 

For more information and beautiful images, Piccoli's work can be found via his Instagram, website and Facebook.

Scantily-Clad Lumberjack Poses For Charity Photo-Shoot

When photographer Chad Castigliano took some photos of his wildland firefighter friend Tim Wilson wielding an ax, wearing nothing but boxer shorts, suspenders, an orange hard hat, he didn't know just how much it would take off. Known as The Whimsical Woodsman, the scantily-clad lumberjack posed for his friend to create a calendar to raise money for charity. The public quickly fell in love with his pursed lips, sultry eyes, and luscious beard. Clearly, it was not caring what people think that helped him pose for this unusual photo shoot, and he certainly proved that confidence is the key to capturing an audience.  Check out his poses below - I know I'd have his calendar on my desk, just for the laughs, of course.
