As a widespread and mass-consumed source of meat, the potential diversity and beauty of chickens is very often overlooked (the same goes for cows and pigs). Photographer and visual artist Ernest Goh, however, has created a series of images that highlight the beauty and character that chickens can exhibit when given a chance. Goh’s series of images focuses on the Ayam Seramas, a chicken bred specifically for its beauty. They have extraordinarily high, full and proud-looking breasts and proud plumage as well.

Gorgeous as it is, nature is the place where everyone has to fight for itself to survive. This is why most of them have developed some amazing camouflage techniques to be able to hide while resting or nesting. This time we put together a very deceptive selection of owl camouflage. These birds are real forest ninjas. If you think you see nothing but a tree or a rock in the picture, take a closer look and you’re in for a surprise!
We rounded up 50 examples of perfectly timed animal photos which seem like pure luck. Most of these shots are so incredible that if you blinked you would have missed it! But as a popular saying goes, “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” What about you? What part does luck play in your photography?
We’ve already featured a huge collection of breathtaking bird photos by John&Fish about a year ago, however our number of subscribers has grown seven-fold from that time, so most of you guys probably haven’t had a chance to see it. John&Fish is one of the most popular ornithology photography teams around Flickr, and we are more than happy to share their incredible bird photographs with you.
Birds are social animals – they communicate using visual signals, calls and songs, participate in social behaviors including cooperative breeding and hunting, flocking, and mobbing of predators. Unfortunately, we rarely get to see these fascinating moments of their lives, but thanks to photographers we can get finally closer to them (especially with big, heavy 500mm lenses running for between $5,000 and $9,000).
