LOOK: Russian photographer captures dream-like portraits with people and real animals

Just in case you’re wondering, the images you’re about to see are not Photoshopped – they’re portraits taken by Russian photographer Katerina Plotnikova with real live animals.

Since some of the settings look pretty dangerous, it’s good to know that there were professional animal trainers on hand during the shoots. For example, the bear, held by many in Russia as a symbol of primal strength and instinct, contrasts especially well with the elegant princess in its embrace – but let’s not forget what happened to Timothy Treadwell — anyway, we digress.

Animals or not, Plotnikova’s photos possess a dream-like quality that makes them absolutely enchanting.
