Wow, just look at that face. "I am the king of the jungle," he's thinking, and he hasn't a care in the world. Tourists? Bah! They don't bother him. But to call him a "camera critter" is somewhat bourgeois, he thinks.

Now that is something I'd love to see, but not too close! I also like the second photo, it gives some perspective.

I like both photos very much! The second really provides a context to those of us who have been in the dark as to how these images are captured, and the first, well... That noble powerful creature, his head surrounded by that thick luxurious mane, surveying his kingdom with such presence and confidence as to his place in this world, takes my breath away!
