Here's a quick shot from our latest trip to Zambia and Zimbabwe. This shot was taken at a Lion conservation project we were there to write about. The animal was not caged and if the exif is still intact you will see it was shot at 105mm.

That would be too close for comfort for me.

Nicely done.

Thanks for the comments guys. I have a few more shots from the breeding program we visited, which I will try to share when processed.

Thanks again for commenting.

105mm......I'm laughing as I'm typing this because, while this is a great shot, it seems way to close for comfort!
