In the jungle
The mighty jungle
the lion sleeps tonight....

Ooops.. it's not night yet and that's not even the jungle. In fact, these lions have been imported to the Philippines so that Filipinos can witness these creatures. This was taken in Avilon Zoo, the biggest zoo in the Philippines. It's about 7.3 hectares wide. The lions seem to have adapted well to the artificial habitat developed for them. It would be nice though to see them in their natural habitat.

very nice relaxing shot! i like the composition and colours!

Welcome to TN Lorie, That's a very good start.
I just don't like the frame.
Well done

Welcome Lorie, This is an very nice opening bid. The pose is exceptional with nice eye contact made on both the lions. The green grass contrasts nicely with their colors. It looks like a nice pen they keep at the zoo for them. Well done, with quality like this I can wait to see more. One small nit but it's personal the frame is a bit bright and distracting.

Very good first post Lorie.
I like this very much.
Good sharpness and DOF, nice colours and composition.
Very well done.

Hi Lorie, Good and very relaxed pair of lions. The colour and contrast are just right. The bright frame makes it very bold. TFS. Murray.
