Great Capture.
The fist full of Moms hair is just outstanding.
The type of shot that makes people want to photograph animals............
Right to my favorites !!!!!

Happy Shooting

Totally agree with Jack, Anne. This is amazing. Shots like this make it impossible for me to believe that up until fairly recently it was thought that animals have no emotions... Awesome work! #8273952
