The competition is fierce, with many potential contestants attempting to sneak into the butt collection on Krahnpix! Who knew there were so many fine-looking posteriors in the animal kingdom?
After much searching, culling and assessing, I present you the first, of what I will expect to be many, butt collections. Or perhaps I should say – these butts are for you!
First up on the Krahnpix butt wall of fame is the rare, but appealing, two-butt shot. Just another reminder that smaller is definitely cuter.
If you’re looking for something in a darker shade, how about a little black bear butt (say it a couple of times – it rolls off the lips beautifully).
In some circles it’s bad manners to keep your nose in the air. There’s no issue with this modest muskrat as she keeps her butt consistently higher than her nose. I think it’s a virtue.
It took a lot of tries but I finally got a photo of a hawk with only its hind quarters showing. I’m quite proud of this butt shot!
No collection is complete without a hairy grizzly butt. I had to wait until its head was in the shadows so as not to distract from the important part.
A young moose shows me his other side which features long legs and just the right butt curve (I looked it up!).
Backlit feathers give this landing hawk a little flair with a special view from behind. I might even argue it’s a better perspective than the front.
Running in grain that is higher you presents an interesting challenge. This little guy would almost disappear between jumps. Here he is, butt in the air, heading back down again.
At first I was disappointed the only reasonable shot of this buck was from behind. But then I saw all four hooves in the air, the ears pointed back, the squeezed butt cheeks, and I immediately saved a spot in the collection.
Of course there’s a rule about ending posts with sunsets, preferably with hawks flying off in the distance. The colour that evening seemed surreal. So did any of those butts catch your fancy?
