Barbary Lion (Panthera leo leo)

By brownbear1991
I have been a bit busy for quite some time and as such haven't uploaded anything...

I took this photo while at Port Lympne Wildife Park somewhere in Kent (sorry wasn't paying attention on the drive down there so can't give an exact location) but it was a rather nice day! This is a Barbary Lion and for those who don't know they are extinct in the wild and only exist in a few zoo's and wildlife parks round the world.

This particular Lion was being rather obliging and stayed in a very convienient place for taking pictures, and in my eyes was actually a bit of a poser...but I am certainly not complaining!

Hi Brownbear
A superb shot of the Lion and its time to stop hiding your light under the bushel. You must have loads more shots like this and its time to get them on show. Well done indeed.
I thank you for your guidance with regard to the Kestrel. As ever you were correct !!
