Animals Yawning

Along with Totally Amazing Sunsets, Animals Yawning has become one of my favourite photography genres since I’ve been traversing the world.

Sunset pictures, though, are only ever interesting to the person who has been there and taken the photo, everyone knows that.

I think yawning pictures, on the other hand, can be interesting to lots of people, even those who weren’t present for the yawn.

So here, a regularly updated archive of photos I’ve taken of animals opening their mouths wide…
