Awww...so sweet and tender. He's pulled her face close and is looking adoringly into her eyes. OK, I'm definitely a softie when it comes to these types of creature photos...what an amazing (and so well-timed) capture of a moment of tenderness between mother and child...now, think I'll go have a good cry over the magic moments of motherhood... :) A beautiful heart-tugging capture, Kathy, you nailed the intimate closeness of the moment perfectly! #1393286
