Want to come down and play? Heh, heh. A beautiful photograph...she looks so calm, tame, even. But, do not pet!

This shot is amazing JM! The relaxed posture, that steady gaze directly into your lens, the dappled sunlight. It all comes together in one sublime moment.

Fantastic photo! Must be so thrilling to see this beautiful animal in their natural habitat.

Just fabulous, Jose. Almost sweet enough to be beguiling.

[Today I posted a mangrove tree photo too, but it doesn't have that amazing water you shot yesterday had.]

OUTSTANDING WORK!!!!
How "relaxed" this Lion lies on the tree;or it seems only like this...? Does she look on the side or directly on you...mmhh!!!
...What emotion it must have been...!
