Great, Yan! Lion looks gorged. Greetings. Eva
Isn't he just handsome! He is rather content. Or proud. His meals arrive on time, in just the right healthy quantities. He never has to stalk for days on end hoping to make a successful kill. He never has to deny the hyenas or the wild hunting dogs their carrion. And he has the ideal number of lionesses in his pride.
But I would prefer to have been able to say that I took this somewhere in Botswana!! Oh well, Dubbo Plains Zoo is the next best.
graet shot of the king of the jungle!thanks for the kind words !
Thankyou Steandeb and Eva. Such moments may be special for children, but for me they are awe-inspiring.
This handsome fellow seems to think: 'Go away, don't disturb me, I want my lunchrest in peace.'
Magnificent Lion Ian, the light on his face is splendid...Anita
I apologise for not acknowledging your message sent in January. I am sorry I missed it, but nevertheless it is appreciated. He certainly was content.
Glad you like him too, Anita.
And by the way, the first group of the promised images is up: panoramas of the Calder Valley at Elland and Halifax. For you, Anita.
My horoscope is Leo.. Well , They are kings No doubt !!!
Thank you for your visit, Eleni. I see you like animals (birds, cats, dogs, rabbits, donkeys) and have them in your album, but not a lion. I am pleased you like my "wild" lion!

Wow! Wow! Wow!
Wow very majestic Lion Ian Stehbens
Greetings from England.
CAT W, studio4t1 and Dennise,
Thanks for your visit and acknowledgement of this wonderful animal.
Perhaps you have seen the recent footage of the two Australians who raised a lion cub in their London flat, and then transported it to Kenya for release into the savanna. I think it was about a year later they returned, and the wonderful reunion of the lion and the men was filmed. The lion immediately recognized them and bounded to greet them with a most remarkable embrace.
