[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A lionís roar is one of the loudest noises any animal on Earth can make. It is so loud that it can be heard over five miles away from the lion! Scientists have been doing research on the immense sound lionís emit and have discovered that the reason its loud isnít because of lung capacity.

Itís actually because they have an unusual set of vocal cords which allow them to produce a noise that is both hard and heavy at the same time, all with hardly using the respiratory system. These vocal cords contain two membranes which are covered in a peculiar layer of fat that allow the vocal cords to vibrate horizontally, magnifying the sound!

Image taken in RAW, ISO400

Hi George

A spotlight as deserved by the true king of the Jungle and its deafening roar. Fantastic contrast and colours which look really good, fresh and believable unlike the close up colours of last picture..Beautiful composition indeed.


Ciao George, great capture of the King, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

excellent wildlife image. good lighting and presentation. tfs.

I still don't mind using JPG in Lightroom George, however you seem to do real well with RAW. And your vignette works well here too. Not at all sure exactly where you're at but you seem calm enough to wait for just the right image to come along. I must say congrats for sticking it all out so long. It's been a rough road on TN. What I didn't see in person I watched from the sidelines...and on through it you continue to do superior work. Keep on the good road.'Bob
