Ukrainian nature photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko shows us that snails are so much more than incredibly slow-moving mollusks who leave slimy trails and sometimes end up on people’s dinner plates. By looking at his photos we learn that snails appear to be curious, playful and even affectionate.

Shot in the woodland area near his home town in Berdichev, located in the Zhytomyr Oblast of northern Ukraine, Mishchenko’s beautiful photos are apparently unstaged. Instead he relies on an extraordinarily keen eye for spotting wildlife:

'As a child, my father taught me to hunt mushrooms near my home and we would always come across all manner of bugs and creatures,' he said. 'As I got older and my interest in photography grew, I decided I wanted to catch these magical scenes on camera.'

Visit Vyacheslav Mishchenkos’ website to check out many more of his remarkable nature photos. The only thing missing from them is narration by Sir David Attenborough.

24-year-old photographer Asher Svidensky recently traveled to west Mongolia with the intention of documenting the lives of traditional Kazakh eagle hunters, people who tame eagles for the purpose of hunting smaller animals.

With the traditions typically laying in the hands of the boys and the men, the biggest surprise throughout the journey was Svidensky’s discovery of a young eagle huntress, 13-year-old Ashol Pan, the daughter of an experienced eagle hunter. These stunning photographs symbolize the potential future of the eagle hunting tradition as it expands beyond a male-only practice.

It was an interesting experience being in the hospital.  My Uncle had been sick for some time.  My aunt had been mourning saying sorry and thank yous in Cantonese since the AM.  It was now almost midnight.  My cousins were also crying.  Our smallest cousin kept whispering how scared she was.  The whole day was spent in tears.  

I had never experienced anything like this.  Amongst the despair, the helplessness, and the anger there was a certain beauty to everything.  To see my family there to support one another was beautiful. 

I will never shake the site of my aunt grieving and embracing my uncle’s head the way she did last night.  To grieve that hard came from such a place of love: a marriage that lasted decades.  It made me anxious to be in a relationship where I will love someone that much.

Wishing you the best, Uncle Chris.
