FAMILY OF THREE

By SueTurner
taken at Longleat Safari Park, in the dodgy bit where they rip your car to shreds bit, quite restricted as to what you can get through the car window and angle of the shot.
Converted to black & white as I thought it had more impact than the colour version.

Thank you for all your comments on the last upload. (Ted is now back to normal by the way and talking to me now).

I'm now going to scoop my eyes out with a spoon so I don't have to look at how much better you are than me! Any clues as to how you did this would be much appreciated - although I probably wouldn't understand if you told me.
In short, awesome shot.
