I see you

By Magneto
Taken on a family day out, didn't really expect to get any good pics, much less such an emotional shot. I'm in two minds about this picture really. It mostly makes me feel sad that such lovely creatures are locked up in zoos for the entertainment of mostly disinterested people. But on the other hand maybe seeing the intelligence and intensity of his gaze might give people a pause for thought and think about where the world is heading. I don't really know.

It's a cracking photo Brian, great expression, but I don't want to read too much into that, it can be upsetting. Pam
