One of the most stunning lions I have ever seen in a zoo. I felt so bad for him. Whenever I go to a zoo I have such mixed emotions... I love that my daughters get to see such majestic animals up close, but my heart breaks for them.

Great idea! Next time try to crop off the bottom because that out of focus ledge is a bit distracting. I know it's tricky, but try to get a shot with the lions head tilted up a bit so that there is more of a catch light in the eyes... I know that this ma require you to hang around the lion cage for a long time, but it will make all the difference when you can see the deep orange eyes lit up.

Maybe if you had a bunch of them, but there is no sin in this pride.

cropping out the wooden boards might help give the illusion of this being a wild animal. good luck
