Hilarious Portraits of Felines Shaking in Motion Photographed by Carli Davidson

You might heard about Portland photographer Carli Davidson‘s photo series “shaking dog” features close-up portraits of dogs in all of their drooling glory. And today, we would like to present you her new collection “shaking cat” where she captured each cat mid-shake in an explosion of fur, skin, and spit. It is worth mentioning that the most of the 61 cats appearing in Shake Cats are rescues. And the reason for Davidson to use those cats as her ‘actors’ is to encourage online adoption.

If you like this shaking series, you can get the book on amaozn. And a portion of Davidson’s advance from the book will support three Portland shelters who provided its subjects.

Stunning High Speed Photos of Birds Catching Fish

We all know some birds eat fishes, but how many of us see the scenes of they catching fishes? Photographer Salah Baazizi give us this chance by taking close-up photos of birds plucking fish from the waters around Bolsa Chica in southern California. These super clean shots of terns, herons, and cormorants give the illusion Baazizi is sitting just inches away and having his camera down birds’ beaks. However, he actually uses a 400mm super telephoto lens and positions himself at great distances to get these photos. Even though, to catch photos like these, the patience and skill needed are still beyond imagination. If you want to see more of Baazizi’s wildlife photos, head over to his 500px page.

Incredible Photos of Surreal Smoke Shapes

These are not some Photoshoped work. These are three months of work for photographer Thomas Herbrich who snapped some 100,000 individual photographs of smoke, looking for unexpected anamalies and fortuitous coincidences where familiar shapes emerged. It is interesting to see how the brain tries to create order out of chaos, try to find familiar patterns such as faces, hands, spine or scrolls of paper out of those random images. After carefully sifting through each image Herbrich selected 20 final shots for this series, aptly titled, Smoke. Here are some of our favorite, click here to see the whole collection.
