Meet Lauren and Fluffy. Lauren is a girl and a swimmer; Fluffy is a duckling and… well… also a swimmer. Together they are the adorable duo at the heart of 500px photographer Juan Osorio‘s recent series Swimming Team.

Juan—who published the full series over on his 500px account—calls Swimming Team, “a tale of a girl, a duckling, a swimming team and an incredible and unexpected friendship.”

Captured entirely on-camera without any Photoshop trickery, Juan says these two are actually friends and actually swim together… now if that doesn’t melt your heart, we don’t know what will. Scroll down to see the rest of the adorable series:

We’ve reached out to Juan to see if he’ll share more details about this dynamic swimming duo and how he captured the photos of them, so check back with ISO in the coming days to find out more!

In the meantime, if you want to see more of Juan’s work, follow him on 500px or check him out on Instagram.
