at first, i was so frightened for this child......

when i first saw this picture, i was really not sure what to think! but as i looked at it closer, i realized that the tiger was inside a tank of water and the child was on the other side of the wall. what an amazing picture! the expression on the tiger's face says everything! he looks as though his primal instincts are being challenged by this gentle, unafraid child. i wish we could see the child's expression, but you can almost feel what he's feeling. i think he is just amazed at this magnificent animal and is so grateful to be so close to him, to feel his spirit. animals and children are so much the same.....free spirits, filled with life and able to learn......i love this picture.
