For those who love animals and art, the life of photographer Tanja Brandt seems like a living dream. The woman, living in Germany, is a fan of birds of prey (and not only) and enjoys creating beautiful images on her travels in the woods in the company of her curious family.

The owl, according to Brandt, likes to be photographed: during the photography sessions, the photographer’s animals move freely in the woods, play, explore and create these curious sets , halfway between reality and fairyland.
