it helps if you go at a time where it's nice and cool. early morning and late afternoon gets them up and moving.

You caught such a perfect moment, the way he's looking at the bright spot on the ground looks really dramatic!

who~ I don't think i've ever seen a lion with black. He's soo pretty :heart: I like the strong light coming from the back, it makes him stand out from the dull background and gives him a "power" look. :thumbsup:

thanks, the black mane is actually rather common. just about as much as the gold. I think they look cooler in general

Great lighting and pose.. You can afford to crop it and try and fill the frame a little. Its a good image
