In celebration of Mother’s Day in May and Father’s Day in June, we’ve found a collection of animal photographs that picture love and tenderness. How better to show that we are all together on this precious blue marble? Enjoy…
We cannot help but to have our heartstrings tugged when we see images of baby animals. Whether its our instinctive desire to protect and defend, or simply the “awwwww” factor, these wildlife photographs are not only inspirational, but awfully cute!
This deer photo almost rivals the Bobcat and fawn story we published last year. If you missed it then, check it out now! And then call a friend that needs a hug!
Precious moments between mom and baby simply cannot be staged. If this doesn’t make you want to hug a child or snuggle with your pet, what would it take?
Living near the Deschutes River in Central Oregon, I often see ducklings following their moms this time of year. From Canada Goose goslings to Mallard Duck ducklings, there is so much cuteness around, you’ll want to scoop it up in a cup to save for later!
Can you feel the love tonight? Where’s Elton John when you need him….? This photo should make Disney animators weak with envy. Their magnificent drawings in The Lion King simply cannot rival the real thing.
Sparring with your brother or sister is usually done in fun and love. Hard to believe that sibling rivalry exists in other species? Not when you see an image like the one above!
Happy Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day! Hope you loved these cute animal photos as much as we did in putting together this post!
Don’t forget to hug the special ones in your life…
