Good Morning
A beautiful white lion lies back and relaxes in the heat of a wonderful French summer. This was taken at a conservancy zoo in La Fleche in the Loire in France. They have won awards for the work they do with rescuing captive animals from private zoo and owners that know not how to look after any animal let alone beauties like this ....

Final day without editing software yeeeha , many thanks for all the kind comments and votes on yesterday's upload. We appreciate them all greatly Col(in) and Mar(i)
