This white lioness graced me with a side glance when I made funny noises to try and get a full frontal Smile
Thanx to everyone for your gracious V&C's - and especially to Gary [ Growmorw ] for his UA - it means a lot to me Smile

What a magnificent big cat she is, Herman, and although a full head on shot was missed, you still got a superb portrait with fine detail recorded and a real frame filler into the bargain.
Ronnie.
