One of the most magical movies I've seen is the Life of Pi. The story of a boy trying to understand and survive alongside with a tiger is simply breathtaking. The power of animals has inspired many stories, such as this and many others.

Also, from time to time we see some truly magical photographs that show us that power, and how great it would be to be friends of animals. Gregory Colbert has spent much of his life capturing moments that show us how possible that is.

Since he began creating his singular work of Ashes and Snow in 1992, Colbert has undertaken filming and photographic expeditions to every continent to collaborate with more than one hundred species around the world. Colbert, who calls animals "nature's living masterpieces," photographs and films both wild animals and those that have been habituated to human contact in their native environments. There is no digital collaging. The images record what he saw through the lens of his camera. While Colbert uses both still and movie cameras, the photographic images are not taken from the film.

Gregory is a great photographer for making making us believe in true friendship between humans and wild animals. For more of his fantastic pictures, please visit his portfolio. You'll love it. Cheers. ;)
