[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
watching his harem, but not very cooperative with the tourists. Took a while until he turned his head to get some of the facial features.
Not as sharp as I hoped for but I thought I had to include him in the African Lion Safari park serie.

Most of my pictures are taken through the closed car window for safty reason.

Hello again Sky, after a long time.

Very interesting and natural pose. I like natural position of this lion and notural colours. Your timing is best. Well done my friend. Greetings

Yes they can be difficult, I sat 4 hours once waiting for one to give me a good shot, never happened. Oh well, nice shot. one for the portfolio.


Hallo Sky,
Dein Problem bei diesem Foto kommt mir sehr bekannt vor. ;-) Schlechte Lichtverhältnisse, das Model ist etwas weit entfernt, zeigt sich nicht von der Schokoladenseite - fotografische eine Menge Probleme! Du hast aber dennoch das Beste aus dieser Situation gemacht. Evtl. hättest Du die Blende etwas tiefer stellen können um so der Gefahr des verwackelns zu entgehen. Ansonsten zeigst Du uns hier ein schönes Foto des Königs der Löwen. Danke Dir.
Ich wünsche Dir eine schönes Wochenende.

A somewhat distant shot, but the head, though slightly turned, is as regal as ever, Sky.
TFS and take care.

a beauty of a king Sky.
a very nice unusual shot, but I like the shot because it's so unusual. very good pov and a good job.
gr. jaap

bonjour sky

Bonjour Sky
C'est un magnifique photo de ce gros lion qui semble se ficher du photographe en lui tournant le dos.
Félicitations pour les détails .les couleurs et la présentation sont très jolies

Merci et a bientôt.....JP

I like it, typical of a cat..very aloof!!
Donna :o)

Hello Sky,
With this big cat, we can not be careless. Very nice pov, dof and exposure. Well done and seen.

Hello Sky,
Wow! Impressive animal!
That head is really something, and you capture the situation well telling about how the animals really live in the park... After all it is not their main objective to pose for photographs!
