How It’s Done: Animals on the Bing homepage

Sometimes Bing Studios can be a real zoo. On any given day, we may wrangle an African elephant, a glasswing butterfly, and a meerkat through the front lobby. But this is what it takes to give our fans those amazing animal photos that have become some of the most popular Bing homepages.

Once we get the critters through the door, they’re signed in and receive a visitor badge—corporate policy doesn’t just apply to us bipeds. Then it’s off to our photography studio, where various creatures sit for portraits or stage action shots.

Things sometimes go awry, as was the case for our April 1, 2017* homepage photo session, but the show must go on.


*No animals or crew members were harmed during the making of this April 1st edition of the Bing homepage
