Quite frequently while I’m googling for photos to add to my blog posts, I will discover images that I may not being looking for at the time, but will suddenly give me an idea for a future post.

I know this may sound strange, but often times I get my blog post ideas from an image first, then write the post afterward.

An image will sometimes spark inspiration.

Last week while surfing the Internet, I stumbled upon some really amazing photographs of unusual-looking animals. I have no idea how or why these photographs showed up, because I was essentially googling for images that pertained to writing.

However, I guess fate took over and somehow lead me to someone who I feel has a very special gift with a camera; especially when it comes to taking photographs of animals.

Those of you who have been reading my blog for some time now, know that I have a soft spot in my heart for animals. I also have a soft spot in my heart for babies. Show me a picture of a cute little baby and I’m all goo-goo-ga-ga.

And show me a picture of a cute critter and I get all animal CRACKERS.

Today I would like to share the talent of photographer, IN CHERL KIM, who lives in Seoul, Korea.

I spent an hour looking through his photostream and had a very difficult time picking just eight.

Most of these were taken at the Everland Zoo in Korea.

A Fennec Fox
This was the first photo I discovered, which lead me to his Flickr photostream.

Isn’t this baby fox ADORABLE?? He looks like a gremlin. This photo makes me want to affectionately chew on those big fuzzy ears.

A Pig Tailed Monkey
Awww….look at those sweet little eyes.

A newborn Tiger

Notice the butterfly that landed on it‘s head. Isn’t nature astounding?

A Brazza Monkey

He looks like a wise old sage who is about to say something very enlightening, doesn’t he?

A White Peacock
OMG…isn’t this stunning? I’ve never seen a white peacock before.

Golden Monkey’s

Look at their faces – it’s as if they were actually painted. Serious-looking animals, aren’t they?

Chimpanzee and Orangutan Love

I bet this shot was taking on their wedding day and he’s saying to her, “Don’t worry my love, I promise to be gentle tonight.”

A tiny baby Marmoset

Have you ever seen anything so tiny and precious? I wish I had one of these when I was a kid for Show and Tell.

If you have some time this week, please stop by Flickr to see more amazing photos from this gifted photographer.


I’m having MAJOR problems with comments right now. Some are being published and others are not. So, if you’ve commented in past two days and do not see your comment, I’m so sorry. This morning I published my comments held in moderation and none of them showed up. Oh well, I suppose they’ll show up eventually. That is, whenever Blogger gets around to FIXING it. Thank you for your patience and understanding everyone…X
