Florence has this cute playfulness in this series – she’s able to freeze candid moments of these rats. She’s able to somehow use the best props and accessories to bring out lovelier atmosphere.

It’s also a great way to explore another door to the wild and beautiful kingdom of the animals such as these adorable pictures of kittens.

The close-up photo in this animal photos series just makes me feel so amused – I stared at it for a few minutes and just marveled at the features of the little animal’s face. Its eyes, the way the little hands grasp on food. It’s fantastic!
