A Mother’s Love

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. This photo was submitted to Your Shot. Check out the new and improved website, where you can share photos, take part in assignments, lend your voice to stories, and connect with fellow photographers from around the globe.
