A Reverse Image Search of the viral photo led us to the Instagram account “babrakk”, which shared the same photo on March 24, 2024 with a caption: “Shirin & her fierce companion. Making a great duo.” In the comments section of the post in Instagram, when asked “How did you manage to take this?”, the account user responded with: “With Midjourney”.
