Looks like the Heimlech manouver, with love. The contrast of REALLY strong and large hands juxtaposed against the fragility of the little one in protective mode creates a lovely story ....and colour coordinated...ahhh how cool.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Olga. Yes, heart warming moments for me. I need more and more frequently this kind of positive input especially in these days of horrifying news from all over the world.
BTW: this photo does not have the quality I'm normally trying to achieve, because I could not use both hands :-)

You are NOT alone with this feeling of angst. As the great philospher Plato said "be kind for everyone you meet is fighting their own personal battle."....very true in these times. But know this.......it will pass. At least nature and her beauty provides us with a balm for our troubled souls. Chirp chirp

The amputation of this hand's thumb I find disturbing and am wondering why you cut the photo at this thumb joint. The image is very blurry and out of focus as well, however, the contest is hands and the hand is there and nothing else to interfere.
