Friends Stick Together

The Owl and his Shepherd

Ingo, a Belgian shepherd, and Poldi, a one-year-old owlet, share a very special bond. For years, photographer Tanja Brandt has made it her mission to capture magnificent photos of animals and wildlife. Recently, the German artist found a new challenge when she photographed the unique bond between two unlikely friends: Ingo, a Belgian shepherd, and Poldi (Napoleon), a one-year-old owlet.

The owlet and canine have a special 'protector-protected' relationship and that their affection towards each other couldn’t be any more evident. Ingo lovingly guards Poldi, who apparently 'doesn't know how to live free.' The owlet hatched two days after his six brothers and sisters, therefore, has always been very vulnerable due to his small size. Comparatively, Ingo was raised by a family of strong, and often times ruthless, police dogs. "They respect each other and they can read each other," says the photographer.
