Sadness Or Contentment? What Do You See? by Merhlin
Sadness Or Contentment? What Do You See?
This horse was in a petting zoo. I personally don't understand the need to have animals such as this in zoos. This animal has "adequate" space and protection from the elements. It does get attention from the staff and regular feeding and vet attention when needed but it has no companion horse and its outdoor pen is small. No room to gallop or trot if it desired to do so. Why can't animals of this size, that are not threatened with extinction, be left in the wild or on farms and ranches. If your kid needs to see one and touch or ride one, visit a ranch that's designed for that purpose and gives the animals plenty of space to roam and graze. I know, it's hard not to project our own feelings onto animals. I had a zoo worker view this photo and tell me that to them this animal looks content. To me, it looks sad.

Reflected Light Off the Water by Merhlin
Reflected Light Off the Water
While the left wing is "blown-out" (over-exposed) by a poor angle with an all too high sun,  that same sun provided the reflections that gave a nuanced effect to this snowy egret's undersides. I'm happy with how it came out.

So what, exactly, does that mean?
I think it means they have a more discerning eye.  ;)  lol
