Abandoned House in the Woods Taken Over by Wild Animals
Finnish photographer Kai Fagerström presents unique photo series, where he captures wild animals making themselves comfortable in abandoned houses in the woods of Finland. Titled The House in the Woods, the photo series is set in cottages near Kai’s summer house, which were abandoned by their tenants after the owner of the place died in a fire. Award-winning photographer noticed how the place was slowly being reclaimed by the nature, and what started as a few snapshots, ended up being a book, published in Finnish, German, and English.
“Deserted buildings are so full of contradictions,” says Kai. “I am fascinated by the way nature reclaims spaces that were, essentially, only ever on loan to humans.” Kai usually works with a clear image of what he wants to achieve in his head, although it make take some time for all elements to fall into place. The photographer has enough patience, however: “This is fine with me,” he says. “The journey is more important than the destination.“

"Dad and I made a video for you! Thank you so much for all the love!!!"

"Esther came to us as a supposed "minipig". Little did our uneducated asses know we were in for a big surprise… literally!
Esther is a pig, that’s really all we know since she was misrepresented as a “micropig”. She was born in spring of 2012 to what we believe was a commercial farm litter. She was somehow removed, perhaps because she was a runt?, and somehow found her way to us.
We hope this page will make you take a minute to re-evaluate some of your daily choices, such as bacon for example. We always seem to prefer the “I’d rather not think about it” approach, but if you took just a few minutes to learn how brutal life is for these loving, intelligent and compassionate animals I know it would change your mind and maybe even convince you to give a vegitarian/vegan lifestyle a chance.”

The TV adverts would have you believe that meerkats keep warm with a stylish combination of silk cravat and crushed-velvet dressing gown.
But in real life, the mammals can go to acrobatic extremes to escape the cold – especially when, like these three, they are facing winter in a British zoo rather than in their native Kalahari.
The pictures show one of the intrepid creatures displaying the dexterity of a circus trapeze artist to scramble into position beneath a heat lamp. And once there, he makes himself at home, exposing his belly to its comforting rays.
Meerkats have a patch on their tummy which is only sparsely covered in hair, exposing the black skin beneath which acts like a solar panel, absorbing the heat after a cold desert night.
Simples, as Compare the Market’s elegantly dressed mascot Alexsandr Orlov would surely say.
This trio was captured in action by photographer Nick Povey on a trip to Paradise Wildlife Park at Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.
