It’s a pair you’d not likely expect – Ingo the shepherd dog and his little owl friend(s) – but here they are, seemingly anxious to pose for Tanja Brandt, a professional animal photographer in Germany. These beautiful photos are a reminder to us all – friends can be found in the unexpected.

We highly recommend you head on over to Tierfotografie Tanja Brandt on Facebook, or check out @tanja_brandt on Instagram; Ingo has other beautiful friends, as well!
