This image was taken in Croatia, Zagreb.
The title says all what I think of the situation in the world concerning animals,well all the living things on earth, doesn't matter which species.

Just to let you know, image was taken in the moment. The lion was sleeping all the time, as they do, then the little girl started scratching the glass. The lion woke up saw the girl and started doing the same thing, imitating here.
I was on the other side and a friend called out, hey look at this, I ran to take a photo. I was standing behind the girl with a telephoto lens, adjusted the settings on the fly and just started shoot burst photos :)
