Where the Wild Things Are

I love photography. I love wallpaper. I love squirrels.


Therefore, I love Catherine Ledner's series of adorable animal portraits, mysteriously titled Catherine's Animals. Mainly the squirrel portraits, naturally, but the rest of the catalogue is almost as adorable.


From the exotic to the spiky to the delightfully domestic, it's surprisingly uplifting to see animals asserting their personality on film.


There's a strange corner of my brain that automatically names animals (and inanimate objects, but that's a story for another day), and gives them little life stories. This is Percy the Hedgehog and his friend Herbert the Woodchuck. They went to college together and now run their own acclaimed landscape design business.


I'd also like to introduce you to Betty the Donkey and Elena the Deer. These little ladies went to high school together. Elena was prom queen. Betty was not.


George the Bulldog and his sister Sophie the Chicken never quite saw eye to eye. George always suspected that Sophie was adopted, whilst Sophie, ever the beauty queen, simply assumed that George was a little on the unattractive side.

And thus concludes the disturbing insight into the bizarre workings of my brain.

That is all.

I love your stories. They're absolutely hysterical and really were a perfect way to start my day. And the photos are awesome. Is it wrong that I want to hug the hedgehog?
