A Lion King

Perhaps the the most beautiful of the animals on the African Plains, lions (Panthera leo) are my favorite. I never get tired of photographing them.

The big cats seem to notice that I’m taking their picture and strike amazing poses – each one different from the next. This lion at WCS’s Bronx Zoo was relaxing in the shade of a large tree when I took this photo – one of many – when he decided to pick his head up and look across his body in my direction.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The photo above was chosen as one of the top submissions for Wild View’s How’s Your Summer? assignment. Congratulations!
