magnificent creature...beautiful portrait of him! V

I agree with Helen's comment. I'm not sure what's behind the eyes. A well executed shot to capture the emotion in the face... if only we knew the thoughts. V

So sad to see these magnificent animals cooped up in zoos!
A poignant shot, Jane. *V*

That is a great expressive and thought provoking portrait. v
Helen Betts12-Jul-2013 18:50
What an expression, and not so sure he's very happy. Love the light, though, and find the brilliant OOF background quite appealing. V.

Nice portrait composition and nice detail.

One will never know if animals are happy in our zoo's, if only they could speak to us...BV

it's easy to empathize with his plight...caging creatures for display always seems a bad idea..

Jim's comment mirrored my thoughts. Well done Jane.
