Aww... Bless!

You know, without your back story, I would say that the bigger one was harming the little one. o.O

The closeness is just brilliant. I like how closely you've framed it as well, thus minimalising all that unnecessary space. The way the body is turned away from us makes it more profound... and the expression on the face of the one doing the pushing feels quite determined as well?

I like how the colours complement each other and how that works like the equivalent of a black and white contrast in terms of its concentration.

Cool stuff. :)

Its a good zoo - the enclosures are reasonably camera friendly unlike so many and the daily birds of prey display is excellent

I just tend to baulk at the word 'zoo'
Rather like some people react at the word 'prison'

It is a shame that zoos are needed - the only way most of these animals have to survive, so many have died out in the wild.
I now put the conservation status in the description box now - frightening how "usual" species are threatened!

Yes. When I was a kid I would never have imagined that by the time I was an adult they would be endangered!

It is amazing - only the other day I discovered tree house sparrow was LC too - there were so many around when I was a kid amazing and very, very sad to see species we take for granted as endangered
