There’s something inexplicably beautiful about seeing scenes from nature in an endless loop, which is why the blog Head Like an Orange focuses solely on featuring nature-themed gifs. The Tumblr blog’s animated images of animals are especially mesmerizing, revealing the intriguing habits of creatures in their natural habitats and their little quirks. Created by Dutch visual artist Marinus, each gif presents a unique look at life on land, water, and in the sky.
The gifs tackle all areas of the animal kingdom engaging in a wide range of typical, comical, cute, and dangerous activities. From a frolicking fox and a hopping kangaroo to a pair of battling red deers and fornicating insects, Marinus captures the gamut of what nature has to offer. Grabbing his images from wildlife footage and hypnotically looping them, the artist presents one eye-catching gif after another.
