    Wow! Love them all, but that first one. :thumbsup:

    Guess that anti-lion-bite-spray works a treat. You look really close. :)

    Cheers, we were lucky enough to have all the lions and tigers sit right up near the glass. It was a rainy overcast day too, so the lighting was nice and consistent.

    The first lion pic is absolutely smashing. All that detail in the "eye lashes" and the "moustache" (I know they are not that but hairs to feel things with...) and the lioness's and lion's faces so neatly lined up... that was just a perfect situation, well spotted and even better photographed. Cool!

    And the tiger looks like he's contemplating something... I would imagine "Calvin's" "Hobbes" (not ours here!) would lie like that as "The Yellow Danger" to jump at "Calvin" the moment he comes home from school and through the door ;).

    To my eyes, this looks perfectly like "nature" ... artificial as the surroundings in a zoo might be. Since you haven't been here in ages, you may not know we have a new forum for "Landscape and Nature Photography", so you put it in "General"... I'll move this over to "Landscape and Nature" for you, ok?

    Thanks LaFoto, I wasn't sure if pictures of animals in captivity would be well accepted by the Landscape and Nature lovers.
