A really top quality and extremely emotive photograph, sorry that I can't express myself any further due to my range of movement and discomfort.

There seems to be an innate sadness in that downcast eye, Cor, but I suspect she will be very well cared for.
A fine shot and presentation.
Ronnie.

You seem to have a penchant for these emotional images Gilbert. Excellent mono with that hidden message about Zoo's.

An emotive subject, animals in captivity, Cor, and one I feel strongly about. You have captured the sadness in its eye, and seeing this magnificent beast behind those bars makes me feel sad too.

beautifully taken and shared, disturbing and nerve racking for the animals when moved
