Fantastic shot of this most majestic Lioness, with the 'King' of the beats in the back ground. I think quite probably the finest shot of these fabulous beats I have even seen, exceptionally well captured.

Superb composition, Phil, and just the right amount of softness on the background lion. Taronga was in the news recently when an elephant keeper got squished against a bollard by one of her animals.
