Pucker up! A wildlife photographer is celebrating 10 years in the profession by releasing a new series of images showing her kissing dozens of different animals from around the globe.
Dafna Ben Nun, from Israel, is a passionate animal lover and has always aimed to raise awareness of animals and wildlife around the world.
"I have always loved animals, it started in my early childhood when I didn't have many friends due to us moving places a lot because of my father's work," Ben Nun said.
"The animals were always there to comfort me in hard times."
As well as speaking to experts before engaging with any animal, she also makes sure she doesn't negitively impact the creatures environment by putting her lips on them.
"Before going on a photography expedition, I study the animal and its habitat to make sure that I won't do any harm to it or myself."
Ben Nun says she is always safety concious whenever she's in the habitat of another species, but says so far she's made many animal friends from all over the world, and each of those friendships have been sealed with a kiss.
