Incredible! You've captured this beast's majesty. I've certainly never been this close to a lion in a natural habitat. Gorgeous and scary!

Gorgeous photograph. You seem to be able to get incredibly close to these lions (very courageous). They are magnificent animals. The colors come on much brighter on this shot.

@Emilio Garcia: Usually when I get this close, it is because the lions have come our way. We are always with guides in vehicles, and good guides stay a certain distance away to keep from stressing the lions. On this morning, we had turned off the engine some distance from the lions but they came close to check out a spot where a female had been resting. They are magnificent, and I do feel some fear when they look in my direction, but it is actually a pretty safe situation. I always feel incredibly privileged when I see a lion, I don't think that feeling will ever fade. (BTW I posted this a bit brighter, I guess it helped, thanks for the tip.)
very nice - friendly but scary. the tones and shadows are nicely balanced in this shot and I especially like the way you've controlled the dof and bokeh and used the light to focus attention on his magnificent face.

Nice capture. I wouldn't want to get in between them!

What a handsome fellah! I like the bristles on his tongue.

@Damon Schreiber: Good for cleaning his deep-pile coat!
Don't feed me to this lion. Please.
