A fine presentation of this majestic big chap, Ron: but I think if it had been roaming around outside my tent I'd have been visiting you know where rather more than 3 timesWinkWink.

Excellent shot Ron. There's nothing like that sound of the lion roaring at night when you're in a tent! It reverberates through everything - I love it!
