Dynamic Wildlife Duos

Two heads are better than one. It takes two to tango. They’re two peas in a pod.

We’ve all heard the sayings about human pairs, but wildlife pairs make for some adorable competition. And since this year’s National Wildlife Photo Contest is open as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, I’ve combed through the archives for some photogenic wildlife duos. Enjoy a few favorites and enter your favorite wildlife photos before the contest closes!

I Spy with my little eye…

These adorable red foxes were spotted by Mavourneen Strozewski in Utah. They were playing and turned when they heard some rustling in the sagebrush, giving a perfect opportunity for this snap.

 

Seeing Double?

Deborah Pearse nicknamed these frogmouth chicks Bill and Bub on her regular visits to see them while they fledged.

 

On the Catwalk

Theodore Mattas spied these cubs’ mother from his vehicle, and when they saw him, “They felt insecure due to human presence and immediately started walking side by side to gain confidence!”

 

A Stroll, My Dear?

This pair of King penguins certainly speaks to our idea of a couple. Beverly Houwing captured this moment that looks like they are holding hands as they walk along the beach at St. Andrew’s Bay on South Georgia Island.

 

I’ve Got Your Back
