A Mother’s Love

Photograph by Oscar Medina, National Geographic Your Shot

A foal snuggles up to its mother at a private zoo in Querétaro, Mexico. “I was attracted by the newest member of a family of horses that was running around the field,” writes Medina. “I decided to approach to touch him. When I was close, he decided to take cover under his lovely mom.”

Medina’s picture was recently published in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen and the Your Shot assignment The Power of a Smile.

It is indeed a wonderful smile, at least the expression of safety, love, comfort!  And it is so well captured and the foal's head so well framed as well.  Just a wonder.  I love the light and composition, the colors and the presentation and congrats.  Thanks so much for sharing.
