Happy Valentine’s Day: My Best Photos and Videos of Wildlife L’Amour

from Wildlife Promise

Love is in the air…and not just for people. Wildlife have their own rituals of l’amour, although they usually don’t involve boxes of chocolates or bouquets of flowers. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, here are some of my favorite photos and videos of wildlife romance (real or imagined) that I have taken over the years.
