Photographer's Note

Looking for all the world like a toy soldier, this young sentry stood motionless at his post, guarding one of the gates to the Amalienborg Palace, the official residence of the Danish Royal Family.

Seconds after this photograph was taken however, two female tourists, wanting to be photographed with him, crossed an invisible line, upon which he came smartly to attention, simultaneously slamming his left heel and rifle butt onto the paving with a loud crack.

Needless to say, the two women just about suffered bowel failure and beat a hasty and inelegant retreat, to the great mirth of the people who witnessed the incident.

A warning not to tug a tigerís tail!
