This is the start of a “sad” little photo series that I’m calling Social Anti-Distancing. We humans currently need to keep apart to stay safe, but with animals it’s a different story. Over the years I’ve photographed many pairs or groups of animals interacting, and I’d like to share some of my favorites with you.
The series kicks off with an image of Buddha and Otto back in 2005. When Buddha would groom Otto, he would always wrap his arm around his buddy like this. The friendly grooming would invariably devolve into wrestling and head-grabbing!
