Photos: Under Cats in Colour

Cats are well-known for being able to squeeze into even the tiniest of spots – but you’ve probably never seen them quite like this before!

In his adorable yet mesmerizing series of images, photographer Andrius Burba takes a look at all kinds of furry and fantastic moggies – from underneath.

From furry fluff-balls to hairless kitties, felines from all corners of the globe make up the creative photographer’s latest project.

Andrius, from Lithuania, created a technique whereby his camera is hidden in a Perspex box, that the cats are encouraged to walk across – resulting in some truly wonderful captures. (Caters News)

Disturbing Composite Photos Reimagine Ocean Pollution

Hundreds of thousands of marine animals — fish, reptiles, birds and mammals — die every year after ingesting or being entangled in garbage carried by ocean currents.

Portuguese artist Paulo de Oliveira’s shocking composite images of animals being strangled by discarded nets and gorging on plastic rubbish serve as a stark warning of the damage caused by human waste.

In his series, a baby seal lion swims with a fishing net around its neck, a turtle munches on a coffee cup, a whale shark consumes plastic bags and a fish eats the remnants of a plastic lid while swimming through a sea of garbage.

De Oliveira, a 64-year-old former advertising executive turned professional diver and photographer, said: “I created these composite images to illustrate the amount of plastic garbage polluting our oceans. I wanted to make people understand the enormity of this environmental attack and how it affects the entire marine food chain. It is a theme that needs strong images that one often cannot capture directly in nature with the necessary quality.

“Nothing that can be seen in these images is unrealistic fantasies, though. All this happens every day in some parts of the oceans. It has already been witnessed by me and by many people but, except for honorable exceptions, it has not been directly portrayed in nature with force that I have tried to present in these compositions. In general, people respond well to images even when they know they have not been captured directly in nature. As I worked in advertising, I see this technique as just another tool that allows me to express my creativity.” (Caters News)

Photos: Amazing Close-up Photos of Snowflakes

[Caters News}- These incredible images capture the intricate details of minuscule snowflakes, moments before they melt. The brilliant shots were taken by Don Komarechka, 31, who has had a lifelong fascination with all things macro — especially snowflakes.

The professional photographer says people often don’t believe that his pictures are real because they’re so perfect. The Canadian said, “These photos were all taken 2 feet from my back door over the past two winters.”

We’re looking at the intricate details of ice crystals that form in the atmosphere and fall to earth. Snowflakes can possess unending beauty and detail even in a single crystal measuring only a few millimeters in diameter.

[Caters News}- These “snapcats” have found their bunny doppelgängers in a series of super-sweet photo shoots. Animal photographer Mark Taylor, from Surrey, England, and his assistants have scoured the U.K. to bring together carbon-copy rabbits and cats.

Sharing details such as fur and eye color, seating positions, startled expressions, and even matching markings on their noses, the cute animals look as if they came from the same litter. Some of them also appear to be the best of friends, with the pairs cuddling up to and even lying on top of each other.
