Photographing animals can be a lot of fun. Whether you’re a professional wildlife photographer or just a kid taking a picture of their dog in the backyard, it’s an amusing way to capture some awesome images of your furry friends. And every now and then, you get a picture that’s just too perfect.
In fact, some animal photos almost seem too good to be true, like the animals knew exactly what was going on and wanted to pose for the moment, making amazing images that truly wouldn’t look out of place on the cover of the hottest new albums. Here are some hilarious and super cool animals who are getting ready to top the charts.
1) All Together Now
These three furry friends all stretching and yawning at the very same time and in the very same way almost makes it look like they’re singing together in perfect harmony.

Like Lady Gaga, this penguin stands out from the crowd. She dares to be different, inspiring us all to do the same.

This classy pup and his hedgehog pal, posing in a beautiful natural area in front of a little waterfall, seriously look like they’re going for some kind of Simon & Garfunkel tribute act look.

These fluffy buddies look like they’d form an amazing group! But we have a feeling the dog in the middle would eventually quit the band and launch a successful solo career.
8) The Lion Sleeps Tonight
These two lions seem to have a bit of a bromance going on, or maybe they’re father and son. Either way, they’ve posed for an absolutely flawless album cover.
These manatees look like they’re trying to recreate Nirvana’s famous ‘Nevermind’ album cover, which famously depicted a baby underwater chasing a dollar.

This playfully posing lion could release a great album of cover songs, including ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry and ‘Joe the Lion’ by David Bowie.
