Artist's Description

Planckendael zoo collection
Mechelen, Belgium

This girl was actually following the stork, walking behind him in a very thoughtful, concentrated manner. Then, very unexpectedly, the stork took a full U-turn and went the opposite direction – and without a moment of distraction or hesitation, she followed him in his footsteps, making exactly the same U-turn… I pushed the shutter as they crossed… :)
