From the smallest of squirrels to the most athletic of antelopes, these incredible photos show the great and good of the animal kingdom jumping around.

In one shot, a might antelope can be seen jumping over a herd of wilderbeast while chasing a bird.

In another shot, a dolphin leaps up from the surface of the water and twists into a back flip.

A pair of perky young labs jump over their mum’s while frolicking in the fields.

Meanwhile, a herd of gnus took a leap of faith over a trecherous river in the Masai Mara national reserve in Kenya.

In another shot a humpback whale spectacularly said hello by jumping clean out of the sea.

The mammoth mammal launches its whole body out of the body and almost hits a low flying bird.
