Lovely Animal Pair Pictures From National Geographic


February 2, 2012Photography1 Comment

We have seen lots of adorable pairs or couples but just take a look of most adorable pictures of wild life taken by Famous photographers from national geographic.

1. Owls


These two owlets are known as Sunda scops (Otus lempiji). They had just hatched from their eggs a few weeks before this photo was taken


 2. Alpacas

A baby alpaca displays some affection with her mother.

3. Sea Lions

A sea lion gives what appears to be a kiss to her newborn in the Galápagos Islands.

4. Raccoons

We found these two raccoons in our backyard, no mom around. They both seemed to look kind of curious, and kind of nervous. My daughter said she likes this picture because the outline of their bodies makes the outline of a heart.

5.Polar Bear

Cubs These two polar bear cubs are playing close to our Tundra Buggy in Canada’s Wapusk National Park.

6. Cheetahs

Most wild cheetahs are found in eastern and southwestern Africa. Perhaps only 12,000 of these big cats remain, and those are under pressure as the wide-open grasslands they favor are disappearing at the hands of human settlers.

7. Horses

Two horses share a moment on a farm that rescues horses in need around the country.

8. Puffins

A puffin couple on Skomer Island off the coast of Pembrokeshire, Wales, U.K. Puffins are small seabirds that come to Skomer Island between March and April to nest and breed. When the chicks can finally fend for themselves, they leave the island between July and August.

9 Sea Lions

While diving near the coast of Santa Barbara Island in California, a group of sea lions surrounded me and started to play with my camera and strobes. This couple was particularly interested by their reflection on the dome port of my underwater housing.

10 Blue Herons

During the later months of the year south Florida starts to get all the migrating birds from all over the country. These two blue herons were performing their mating dance before they mated.

11. Cows

Early morning greeting, almost-human morning kiss! Scene captured along the the banks of the river Loire in France.

12 Red Foxes

Recently, a red fox has been hunting in the marsh behind my condo on the Connecticut shoreline. I’ve seen her during the early morning hours when I walk my dog and on my way to work. I thought it strange to see a traditionally circumspect creature in such a public venue. These two are the explanation, it turns out. She and her two kits (featured here) have a den within the boulders of the seawall by the town docks. Every day they become more curious of their enraptured audience, us.

13 Lions

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation in Headcorn, Kent, England, is home to three African lion brothers. The brothers were born at Woburn Safari Park before being moved to the Wildlife Heritage Foundation. The Wildlife Heritage Foundation is a U.K.-based charity for the protection and preservation of big cat species. Here one of the lions grooms his brother after they had finished eating.

14.Lowland Gorillas

This photo of two lowland gorillas was taken at the Bronx Zoo in New York City. This is part of a series of photos I call Bronx Zoo Diaries.

15. Damselflies

16. Parrots

I loved the scene when the parrots brought their beaks together and kissed.

17. Hippopotamuses

Hippopotamuses in water 18. Mallard Ducks A couple of mallards take a stroll on the ice of a tributary stream of the Ottawa River in Ontario this past winter.

20 King Penguins

These king penguins were part of a breeding colony photographed in the Falkland Islands, their spectacular coloration on full display. I liked the intimacy portrayed between an adult male and female in the moment.

21 Goat and Dog

Buddy, an adopted stray, befriends Darla, a day-old Saanen kid. Summer 2007

22. Orangutans

Cium saya = kiss me in Indonesian. This picture of Borneo orangutans was taken at Singapore Zoo just right after we took some pictures with them. The female (right) was carrying her baby in her arms, so I assumed that the male (left) was her husband. Just like us, animals do rely on their partners to survive in the world. It makes me think that if they can be so passionate to each other, as a human why can’t we?
