Nice ladies bathing lion queen :thumbs_up:


No macro lens eos5d.
In 2007 I had a Panasonic bridge camera and I took some risks with this close up :big_eyes: (Should have been wearing an helmet :lol: )
It's easier(and less risky) now with my 7D and 100-400 lens

I agree lion queen they are very very intelligent birds
When a child (a long long time ago... ) I had a tame one.

In the series Birds and blue sky (I do not dare an ID, Anne-Marie is watching...) :D
