Drop everything and look at these adorable photographs of curious animals approaching wildlife photographers. They are sure to brighten up your day. A thread that is going viral on Twitter compiles some of the most magical shots of animals approaching wildlife photographers on the job.
Wildlife photographers have a job that requires a lot of patience and a lot of waiting. Photographers sometimes stay at one spot for hours - or even return to it day after day - until they manage to get the perfect shot. But while it sometimes takes ages for their patience to be rewarded, sometimes, their subjects approach them with little hesitation.
These photos capture some such unexpected encounters between animals and wildlife photographers. Twitter user Joaquim Campa shared the pics in a thread that has gone massively viral on the microblogging platform. Take a look at it below:
