@gianmarcovichiphotography recently returned from a trip to the Faroe Islands. 'We spent eight hours in a dusty, old, Faroese house with poor internet connection and no TV, waiting for the end of the pouring rain that was lashing down on Mykines, the westernmost part of the Faroe islands. We had lost all hope when the clouds finally cleared and the rain stopped. We went up on the cliff and sat on the grass, surrounded by puffins and everything was flooded by the warm, magical and very gentle light of a setting sun.'

A harp seal pup at Gulf of Saint Lawrence in Canada. The animal's Latin name Pagophilus groenlandicus translates to English as ice-lover of Greenland. Harp Seals are incredibly agile swimmers, staying underwater for up to 15 minutes at a time, making their diet varied with an array of different fish and crustaceans. Their thick coats of blubber not only keep them warm, but also serve as a source of nutrition when food resources are thin.

A red squirrel stops for a look on a mossy branch in the Netherlands. Red squirrel populations across most of Europe and into Asia aren't threatened in comparison to the UK due to the lack of the invasive grey squirrel.

The sun setting over Lofoten, Norway. Lofoten is an archipelago known for its distinctive scenery with dramatic mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays, beaches and untouched landscapes. The seas surrounding the coasts are rich in wildlife with fish, dolphins and otters, and puffins line many of the coastal cliffs.

A curious fox kit in British Columbia, Canada. Fox cubs are incredibly playful with their siblings, using gentle fighting and chasing as practice for hunting and catching prey when they get older.

...and stretch!
A female cheetah takes a morning stretch before the start of another day in Masai Mara National Reserve. These elegant big cats can reach speeds of up to 96kph over short distances thanks to their flexible spine, long legs and semi-retractable claws among other features that make them the perfect sprinters.
