Another great photo man. The branches in front of the lion work well. It looks like he's about to pounce on you. Well done

Wow. I love your shot.
I like the teeth and the expression on the lions face.
I also like your POV, looking through the grass.
great shot!! nicely done given the unpredictability of these BIG cats..
thanks 4 sharing.
What an amazing Kitty!
Just wonderful photo - great moment and wonderful eyes!
Well, next time I have to releave myself in the bush, I will feel these eyes staring at me from behind - things will never be the same again :)
This is a stunning composition, with excellent sharpness and loads of impact.
Very well done and thanks for posting

This is an impressive capture, that works well with the distractions that you mentioned.
(Try imagining this same shot without them...)
The composition has an air of excitement and intrigue, that it would not otherwise contain because of these distractions, IMHO.
Great job and note, thank you.

great picture Rob. It is always easy to say what bothers about a picture, but animals do not pose unfortunately. I think it is a fantastic picture. TFS.
Another superb capture!
At first I thought that the blurred FG may be disturbing, but you set the focus so perfectly that along with this POV it makes great whole. The FG became quite important and interesting part of the photo.
I like the tight framing as well.
Overall, excellent and exceptional capture.
I like it very much.
VERY WELL DONE!

The expression here is priceless Rob! Great details, sharpness and light. The grass foreground is only slightly distracting with that great look on the lions face captivating the viewer at once. Well done!

FG, low POV, strong tele that "flattens the canvas", and earthy colour scheme all come together to create a picture reminiscent of a painting, and a beautifully expressive portrait too. The detail in the variously coloured fur and hair is amazing and with the branches infront adds to the brush-stroke appearance. Very well done!
