This is taken at the Denver Zoo. He is the cub-son of my zoo entry. His father was born in Kenya. I wanted to capture something that transcended national borders. I believe that zoos are wonderful for many reasons. This particular cub is bound for the Bronx Zoo very soon. I hope everyone understands my motives behind this photo.

Good finish but I'm a bit disappointed that this didn't get a Blue or even make it to the top three because it sure deserves it. Good work.

Never thought of the lion as being capable of having an expression. This one does! Great photo.

Great eye contact.

I really like the tone on tone that this photo has. The textures and colors of the rocks are almost identical to the one of the big cat. I love his relaxed pose. This image has a softness to it which I really like. Spot on!!!
