King of Beasts thinking of what he can get up to today
and the other lion came off worse!


Again taken at the WHF in Kent with other EPZers
always a great day's photography


Thank You Andy for your award
on the Frog yesterday
and to you all for commenting, always appreciated

Off out now to Bushy Park to meet up with some more EPZers
but so dark outside, not sure if fog has lifted from yesterday!

Enjoy your Day

Lillian
