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.

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.

Quote:A really top quality and extremely emotive photograph
beautifully taken and shared, disturbing and nerve racking for the animals when moved

Well taken & presented - however, a rather sad image with an appropriate, thought-provoking narrative.
