Rescue Dogs Wedding

1202 Rescue Dogs Wedding

When wedding photographer Katie Yeaton saw that one of her dogs had white fur and the other had black-and-white fur, she did what only a wedding photographer could do: she threw them a backyard wedding complete with professional photography to remember the day.

“I realized they’d be perfect as a bride and groom and took just one photo and posted it to Facebook”, Yeaton, 30, of Norwalk, Conn., told ABC News. “So many people loved it that I decided to do a whole wedding”. The photos of Yeaton’s backyard affair for her pups, rescue dogs Lucy and Teddy, were so well received that she is now fielding even more requests for festive canine photography in addition to her usual wedding beat. “My main goal is that I just hope it makes people smile”, she said.

Monkey Selfie

1109 Monkey Selfie

These are the chimp-ly marvellous images captured by a cheeky monkey after turning the tables on a photographer who left his camera unmanned. The inquisitive scamp playfully went to investigate the equipment before becoming fascinated with his own reflection in the lens. And it wasnt long before the crested black macaque hijacked the camera and started snapping away sending award-winning photographer David Slater bananas. David, from Coleford, Gloucestershire, was on a trip to a small national park north of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi when he met the incredibly friendly bunch.

The Frog and Snake

1102 The Frog and Snake

The frog and snake. Clinging on with sticky toes, a green tree frog sits bravely on its unlikely friend – a large tree python. Curled around the branches of a small coconut tree, the snake appears relatively undisturbed by the bold passenger that has clambered onto its skin. Grown in captivity together, the pair display no signs of aggression or fear, comfortable with their encounters high up in the leafy branches. Photo enthusiast Fahmi Bhs watched in surprise as the frog slowly climbed along the scales of the metre long snake in a zoo in Jakarta, Indonesia. (Photos by Fahmi Bhs/Solent News/SIPA Press)

Elephant vs Car

198 Elephant vs Car

Two terrified occupants of a Volkswagen Polo found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time as the giant animal stooped down to rub itself against the vehicle’s roof and bonnet. The incredible scene was captured by field guide and lodge manager Armand Grobler, 21, at Pilanesburg National Park in South Africa. He said: “I was doing ethology – the study of animal behaviour – at the time, so I had a basic understanding of what was going on. The elephant was presumably on Musth, which is a time that an elephant male has an excess amount of testosterone, turning even the calmest Dumbo into a raging bull. Yet even though it was in this condition, it displayed no signs of aggression or frustration and was in a more playful mood”. Elephants frequently use logs, small trees and rocks to relieve an itch or remove parasites – but with the car so close to hand, this was a chance too good to pass up.
