This sand-covered raccoon is waving hello to his curious observers. He immediately stuck his hand up in a friendly salute to let them know he sees them and thanked them for the snack. Imagine if every animal gave us a hello like this. This photograph is titled, “Hello Everyone” by Miroslav Srbtographed. The picture is captioned, “raccoon on a Florida beach, where I fed him shrimps. Then he thanked me like that.” We imagine every animal in the world tries to say thank you, but most don’t manage to wave hello. This little guy showed us that animals are smarter than we think (via Bored Panda).
This fish is certainly fighting back for every fish in the world that a bear ate in the past. The photograph is appropriately titled, “Fight Back” by John Chaney. It looks like this salmon is trying to dig its way into the bear’s ear and give him a taste of what he deserves. These wildlife photos show us that animals have awareness. We need to give them more credit. These guys know how to fight back. They captioned this photograph, “this salmon decides to punch the bear in the face rather than be lunch.” It’s always better to put up a fight than give up and lose. At least if the bear ate him, he knew he died trying. It’s always more admirable to put up a fight and make sure you’re trying your hardest than to just give up without even trying. This is true in the human world, and it looks like it’s true in the animal kingdom, too. We have a lot to learn from these animals, as they seem to have the right idea about life. Through these wildlife photos, we’re getting a glimpse into a world we previously knew nothing about (via Bored Panda).
There’s nothing wrong with a sunset swing! These kangaroos know how to have fun and play with each other. It’s the best way to pass the time, and it’s always a good idea to let your inner child shine. This photograph is titled, “It’s All Kicking Off!” by Michael Eastwell. This is one of the funniest wildlife photos on this list since it portrays a scene that’s not what’s happening. It’s fun to imagine the scene either way and pretend these animals are playing around with each other. They captioned this photograph, “apart from its beauty, Cape Hillsborough is renowned for its resident kangaroos and wallabies. I visited the area for three consecutive sunrises, but it was on my final morning that I captured this beautiful spectacle, two wallabies playing/fighting on the beach as the sun burst through the surrounding clouds.” This is a sight we’d love to melt into. There’s nothing better than watching incredible sunsets and skies stained with beautiful colors (via Bored Panda).
