Very neat capture - like how they're putting their "heads together" to help out their prostrate friend! Good job, and congrats on a nice score for a free study entry!

This is stunning. Such a special capture and the framing is perfect. A once in a lifetime opportunity for you. You should offer it as a print.

Wow...this is such a wonderful and emotive capture. You can feel the true connection between. We're not that different, are we? Simply wonderful and IMHO, underrated. :)

Very moving. Postures just right AND they make a most pleasing composition. I like the processing, and even without the title, which is excellent, it evokes certain paintings of early operating theatres.

This would have done really well in "science"...I like this a lot.

Fantastic capture! This is one of those photos that is what photography is about; capturing life. Centuries from now people can look back at this photo and learn from it.

I wish there was more light in the shadows, but that's life, heh.

Strange. I wonder what is going on? Really engaging image that causes the observer to stop and look (or at least they should!) I love seeing interactive animal shots. Makes you realize they aren't that much different from us.
