Imagine seeing yourself for the first time in your life. What would that be like? Would you like what you see? Would you hate it? Would you be intrigued? We all take the mirror for granted, but sometimes we forget that most creatures have never laid eyes on one.
French photographer Xavier Hubert Brierre placed some mirrors in the forest so he could catch some wildlife interacting with their reflections for the first time. The results he captured are just stunning. While some of the animals enjoyed what they saw, some seemed perplexed while others seemed to be enraged and didn’t want anything to do with the animal in the mirror.
It is so interesting how the different animals react to themselves. I think the leopards had the best reaction of them all.
