Sorry for himself

By Lillian  
You should see the other one!
They have had to be separated as fighting each other...

As you know the Lion is one of my favourite Big Cats
and so upsetting to think of this one away from his 2 brothers...

Thank you everyone for your great comments
and To Steve, Hugh and Kate for your User Awards, very much appreciated

Been out today with a new group for U3A
started them off with Photography fingers crossed they will enjoy

Trying to assert his authority but losing out in the society stakes and finding himself all alone: he does have a rather forlorn countenance, Lillian.
But he will always retail that magnificent appearance no matter whatever else.
A super shot, detail immaculate and filling the frame.

Scar face. Well captured. Looks so forlorn

Us Leo's Lillian, we brood on things! do not feel sorry for ourselves more Angry! and we become isolated, but more likely to fight in return! and when we do we expect and give no quarter that I have proved time and time again, he is a chess player, nice photo from my favourite champion, regards Leon the Lion.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin he is thinking his next move lol.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

He looks miffed rather than sad, but that's what you get for scrapping. Great lose up.
