Chihuaha's eye view: Photos taken on collar cameras reveal the world from a pet's unique perspective

A new book explores what the world looks like from the perspective of an animal.

PetCam: The World Through the Lens of Our Four-Legged Friends is a compilation of photos taken from cameras hanging around the necks of pets - from a cow in San Diego to a pet cat in Germany.

The results are a fascinating and often stunning insight into how these animals see the world, unknowingly snapping photos that could easily pass for professional shots.

Animal instincts: A new book called PetCam is a compilation of photos taken from cameras hanging around the necks of animals. Pictured: The perspective of Coulee, a Border Collie/Golden Retriever mix

Coulee's adorable photos all feature his whiskered snout at the top. One particularly professional looking image shows him pointing his nose at a woman who is planting in the field.

In another, Coulee's nose hovers over the splashing water of a river. Due to the positioning of the camera attached to his collar, the photos are almost exactly symmetrical, making them look even more aesthetically pleasing.

Author Chris Keeney told Slate: 'If you're allowing your pets to roam freely with the camera, you then will learn where they like to go during the day and the types of things they like to investigate. You may find yourself amazed how much time can be spent watching a bird sing in a tree.'

He added: 'Maybe in the future you might stop and look at things closer yourself. Maybe the secret to a happy life isn't that complex after all.' Another animal featured in the series is Fiona, a Red Angus Cow from San Diego, California.


Trip to the seaside: Astro, a Chihuahua who lives in San Diego, California, with his owner Jennifer Phillips, has quite the unique perspective during a walk on the beach
Wait for me! One of the pictures he took is from behind a human's feet, which he seems to be chasing

One of Fiona's pictures is of a group of chickens running away as she approaches. In another, a man can be seen upside-down standing above her as she roams.

Fritz, a tabby cat owned by Ramona Markstein in Hartenstein, Germany, snaps some very artistic photos - one of a bird house hanging from a pole in the pink sunlight, and another of a wooded area covered in snow.
