You captured a great moment and pose.

Comment left by: Ollli (no e-mail specified) Canon? Canon!?!?!? What the heck! ;-)

Comment left by: Andrew McPhee (macca@maccastuff.com) Very nice photo, great bokeh and composition. It's a shame he/she wasn't facing the camera. I find the image a bit washed out and lacking contrast...or is it just my monitor?

Comment left by: Piers Hemy (no e-mail specified) Great composition, great control of focus, and most uncaracteristic of zoo shots. But then it's Whipsnade - must get down there!

Comment left by: James N. McBride (jnmcbr@srv.net) A lot of symbolism in this image. Arms open to welcome the sun to rejuvinate for another day.
