Posing photos about animals, especially tiny ones is a difficult job for all photographers because they will spend much time patiently waiting for good chances and taking pictures. A Blue Morpho butterfly sucking nectar from one banana, a seagull flying over the sea at Marazion and a weaver constructing its home are among the world’s best animal pictures.
A seagull flies over the sea at Marazion near Penzance on February 8, 2011 in Cornwall, England. Cornwall features the warmest winters in the U.K. thanks to effects of Gulf Streams so its weather is milder than other places in the world at the same latitude.
