By now they are passes many years to you but the day of the gita one to the zoo is still alive in the memory.
E' possible to approach in car but for the zone monkeys to you is more advisable to go in trenino poichè the likeable little animals hopping everywhere could scratch means or to take apart some you leave. The Zoosafari is the greatest faunistico park of Italy, and boasts beyond 200 species various. Surface of beyond 140 h extends on one of land, in great part to Mediterranean spot, to the feet of hills of the Forest of Fasano, one of the beautifulst localities of the Puglia, to single 7 km. from one charming sea. The park is born the 25 July 1973 thanks to two lovers of the nature, Matteo Colucci and Angelo Lombardi,developing themselves and becoming larger themselves from year to year and accommodating in this naturalistic paradise living animals of the 5 continents. In this park the animals live in absolute freedom, without slabs or barriers, and therefore it is possible to admire them, to photograph them, filmarli in a nearly natural atmosphere.

Hi Stefan,
A great action moment captured here!
You were lucky enough to capture this "intimate" moment between the lions.
Very good POV and this frontal approach, wich let us appreciate a good close-ups of both animals.
I like also the composition and frame used.
Very interesting your notes about the zoo.
Congratulations, thanks for share and best regards,

Hi Stefan,
Good shot, Stefan. Anyway you know what I mean.
Nice content.
Good compo.

Hi Stefan, lovely scene of two lovers, great composition and beautiful colors, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

I see this as a tender moment in the love-making scene between lions you have captured here at close range, Stefan.
Thanks for dropping by and leaving your kind words on my recent picture.

Hi Stefan,
I really like this frame filling tightly cropped composition. Really good colors and detail. The expressions on the lions faces are telling.
Lion love can bee very physical and rough. Well done!

I like the tight crop on your image Stefan. It is sharp with lots of detail. On my computer monitor there seems to be a cyan cast to this image and it seems a little dark. That sounds like a wonderful zoo.

Evelynn : )

great true to life nature shot..
the male lion takes a lot of hard knocks as he mates over the week..look at a male lions nose..its always covered with scars..
the female gives him aggro then submits..
super shot
