I find this photo very interesting because of the colour. There is a bland background but in the foreground there is a very colorful line of ladybugs all trying to get to a crumb.

I enjoy this image because it has a very cool camera angle and texture which make there landscape look bleak and unforgiving. It displays how majestic the Lion is.

This image is very cool because it took a photographer eye to wait for the usn to be exactly at the right spot and then to align the persons hands around it.

I cannot be certain if this image is real or fake but if it is real, i think it is amazing how the photographer took the photograph just at the right moment (and hopefully survived).
