Good morning, Mr Bass and I enjoyed a rare day off together yesterday and made the most of it by visiting the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

The big cats were slow to get going due to the freezing temperatures but posed for some beautiful shots after they had a big cat fight followed by some lunch!

Thanks to everyone who voted yesterday I really appreciate your support.

Beautifully taken image - such a pity that the right hand Lions foot has been excluded and the left hand lions tail has gone too- you will have to go back! Either of these beautiful animals would make a beautiful study on it's own. A
