21 stunning photos of some of nature’s most adorable characters

With all the heartbreak and shock we involved in animal rights deal with daily, it does the heart and mind a lot of good to see healthy animals looking absolutely beautiful in their natural habitats, living freely as who they are. Cages, chains, whips, disregard, hunting/trapping/killing, confined lives of slavery and abuse…those should never, ever be. Not on humanity’s watch.

Photos are credited where known, others are unknown origin or free to use (public domain).  Enjoy…(and work towards all of their freedom from people’s brutality…they have far more than enough to deal with in nature without us added to the mix.)

Red-Crowned Wild (Amazon) Parrot

Red-Crowned Wild (Amazon) Parrot – These birds actually escaped the pet trade and those awful cages, returned to their wild state and learned to thrive, and have survived for decades in Southern California and elsewhere. I love hearing and seeing flocks of these very vocal birds! (Hate to imagine what they’re saying about us though.)
