Very nice image. I am wondering how it looks like as BW photo (maybe I will post a WS later). Nice composition, good OOF background. I like the light here. It has a great potential that could be used in a BW image
I like it very much

A very good portrait of this healthy looking lioness. I especially like the play of light on her face and the detail in the shadow areas. Good composition , dof and natural colour.
Aids is also taking it's toll in the lion population especially in Kruger.

There has been a longheld notion that the most creative works come through the eyes of one who suffers. We have seen and/or heard of this through deaf composers and earless painters...artists who die penniless and or of liver failure. Men and women who are tormented, yet their words become classic and same with the other forms of art and dance/music they perform and write.
The above is written, in a round about way, of you, from me. I know of your "past" and the "things" of which you have been through. And for some reason, only high powers know, this turmoil has led you to absolute genius in work with certain animals and lighting. I don not believe that they is a more apt and yet humble man of God on this TN who takes as magnificent images of creatures as do you. This image shows the consistency which you do so well in all of your loves...

Annoyed may be an understatement. What a look on her face! To add to the drama she looks like there is a spotlight on her. Great shot!

The overhead sunlight make a fine lighting effect in this close capture of a lioness, taken with excellent sharpness and from a fine POV.

The tight composition is something I like about your pic. The sharpness and detail are also excellent. In the pic the POV, DOF, BG and overall clarity of the image make for a wonderful pic.

Beautiful lioness, James.
Good you mentioned the warthog situation.
She has a specific expression here. Looks a bit like a puma.
The sunlight was a bit harsh. Good sharpness and compo.
