Paw-parazzi: A photographer snaps Wilbur and Wilma at the pool, in the mountains and on the moon
Thanks to dozens of tiny props and plenty of wire and glue, photographer Chris Richards is imagining an exciting life for Mr. and Mrs. Wildcat.
While it can be tricky to get the perfect shot with human subjects, these particular versions of Wilbur and Wilma present their own challenges. Since the stuffed animals he's using are not posable, Richards has used a combination of tape, wire, safety pins and glue to position them how he wants. And because one set piece toppling over can take other pieces with it, setting up the photos can take a lot of patience, which, Richards admits, is not his strongest suit.
