Great shots suzie Q

Thanks. Backlightling was not ideal, and a bit soft, but I liked the poses.

Here's a shot of "Tiny" from the Wildlife Heritage foundation in Kent, England. Taken last month.

smallpotatoes (Jaci)-What a great facial expression. How did you get his attention?

Aest-nice series. I love #2-the 'sarcatic smile' is unique.

SuzieQ-ditto. I don't see many images of lions with the cubs. Nice shot-thanks for additions.

Great shot Guapo I'd frame that one if you have not already!

I couldn't have said it better. Very nice shot. I thought it was a great shot and then when I scrolled down and saw the cub in the corner, it was even better. Thanks.

Swaffs- Nice detail. I'm confused on how he got the name Tiny. He doesn't look tiny be any means. Thanks for contributing.

Thanks for sharing. How did you get the first lion to pose with his paws like that?

Cats do that naturally, big ones and little ones:

Thank you for the explanation and the evidence. I really enjoyed your image for proof. Cute.

Thanks. That was actually shot through glass. As soon as I walked up to him, he turned & looked at me. And he just looked at me like that for the longest time. As strange as it may sound, I felt like I had a connection with him. I actually wondered if maybe he had been hand raised & I looked like the person who had raised him. Let's just say, if he had been a dog or cat at a pound, he would have been adopted right then and there!
