Monochrome Madness 3-11


Today, I have another portrait for you. Unfortunately, this male lion lives in a zoo. The image is shot through a glass wall. He’s only about 2 meters away from me.

I usually don’t go to a zoo. I feel pity for most of the captured animals. Although the areas are designed more natural nowadays and are way bigger then before. They are still captured and not able to live their natural life.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole.

Take care!

    1. you’re right, Julie. Because we humans steal all the country from the wild animals, the captivity in zoos is kind of a shelter. So, captivity becomes the only way to survive for some (many?) species.
      On the other hand, humans are more willing to save what they known. Thus, captivity for somme individuals might became a profit for those remaining in freedom.
      As Spock said: “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”, in the movie Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, 1982
