Wonderful portrait of the king of beasts, well he knows it and all the more so with that upward gaze.
Great detail, and all the scars of past tiffs still etched in his fur.
You do these animal shots so brilliantly, Lillian.

This to me is your best photograph by far Lillian. The tones and detail are first class. Also the angle of capture with the lion looking up and away from the camera really works well and excellent detail and catchlights. Also a very good neutral and dark bg to bring out the sharp edge detail of his fur
