Mirror image photography is not as simple as some power envisage. It takes creativity and ability to together see the possibilities and then end up with a incredible photograph – mostly if your subject is great that’s not likely to maintain still and perform! Interestingly, in the mirror test – a determine of whether animals are able to recognize themselves in said reflective instrument – only a handful of species passed. These include gibbons, chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas, bottle nose dolphins, killer whales, elephants and European magpies. Oh, and us humans. Then again, sometimes animals seem absolutely satisfied to sit quietly in front of their reflections in water; in fact, if these images are anything to go by, they’re as vain as the rest of us! They may not be looking into actual mirrors, but many have been caught apparently looking at their own mirror images. you see this beautiful post about animals reflected in water and comments about this work.
