WOW!

The pose of the lion in the third picture....it looks like he is going to launch hisself any moment, but starting to relax in the fourth picture.

Thanks for sharing ghostdogg!

Best regards,

Well done ghostdogg on some amazing photos. I love the 2nd one where the lion is drinking and the 3rd one where he is starting to lie down - looks quite cute and cuddly if not a bit sad!! Lovely :clap: :clap: :clap:
