Oh, sweet,

Yes, recent research (neuroethics) show that animals, including humans, feel good when they make another being feel good/better. And that extends to other species. So for instance mouses can even cooperate in favour of a member of another species

It's a matter of brain chemistry. Seems we are born to do well to others. Has nothing whatsoever to do with commandments. Somewhere along the line most humans seem to supress that knowledge/ability/innate disposition

Personally I doubt, though, that mouses used in "experiments" should (ethical valuation) / would (practical consideration) cooperate in benefit of their torturers

The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Beautiful shots! I agree with Saly, enter #8 in the potd contest. It's a winner for sure!

the only suggestion is shooting is such strong sunlight is to ev down to avoid the blown out area of the fur. By -1/3 to -2/3, if you do underexpose a to much, you can always bring it back in PP.
