We were shocked to learn that these images are of real animals! Katerina Plotnikova, a Russian photographer from Moscow has managed to capture these small to very large animals in beautiful harmony with their accompanying human models. All set in the stunning Russian wilderness with its autumn hues and mysterious shadows.
Katerina was able to get this amazing collection of images together by making use of animal trainers who assisted her with each animal. We think the models did a fantastic job, posing so naturally next to and in many cases on top of some really dangerous animals.
