Stephen Phillips from San Francisco, United States

A beautiful capture - and another sad-faced zoo creature. My soul sighs...

8 Jan 2009 5:26pm

@Stephen Phillips: You are right, an animal should be in nature, but the whole story is a bit more complicated. Our local zoo is part of an international network of zoos that try to save Siberian Tigers from extinction. There are only about 400 left in the wild.

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

He is sad. excellent.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

He is probably thinking about running free and maybe snacking a on a few photographers :-)

8 Jan 2009 6:33pm

@Michael Rawluk: Especially in summer, as in winter the photographers have several additional layer of fur and are less tasty! :-)

Earnest from Oklahoma, United States

When I look into the eyes of an animal in this posture I always wonder what thoughts are in those minds... and sometimes I feel a sense of sadness and loss for what might have been... and a growing frustration in my own soul for complete freedom.

10 Jan 2009 3:39pm

@Earnest: Thanks Earnest, we always appreciate your comments !
