Beloved pets look like superheroes as they are caught on camera flying through colourful clouds of powder paint in these astonishing photographs.

Jess Bell, 35, from Scarborough, Canada, uses holi powder to give the effect that the dogs are flying through dramatic clouds.

Holi powder is made of cornstarch which is mixed with brightly-coloured food dye – and it does not affect the dog’s fur.

The powder is used at Holi – a Hindu spring festival also known as the ‘festival of colour’ – which involves people throwing powder at each other as they celebrate the victory of good over evil.

Ms Bell, who loves to capture animals in motion, uses the holi powder to accentuate the dogs’ athleticism.

The animal photographer said: ‘I love capturing animals in action.

‘I love the challenge of freezing a moment in time and have it be crisp and dynamic.

‘The dogs live to jump and play – the powder doesn’t faze them at all.

‘It can take a while to get the picture and we probably did five reps or so per dog for this series.

‘My friends were willing to let me get their dogs a little colourful but I’m keeping the finer point of how I create these to myself.’

The photographer gathered a small group of friends and their beloved animals based on their talent and appearance.
