I understand why PETA exists -- to preserve the majestic nature of animals as seen in Daniel Naude's portraits. Looking at these images, I can't even fathom the idea of someone hurting, humiliating or disrespecting them in any way, shape or form.
Taken in South Africa, the backdrop is just as spectacular. Daniel Naude is able to capture the grace of both the land and animal in one fell swoop. As you browse through the gallery above, notice that the bull is urinating, and yet it still manages to look regal.
