Watchful

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thanks for your votes and comments and to Lynne (Drighlynne) for her UA, much appreciated....
A Lioness for today, resting in some shade, but still on the lookout for a tasty impala....I thought the V2 Lioness image was appropriate after my long stint at the dentist yesterday. I also had my eyes closed Grin I did not think it was possible to keep ones mouth open for so many hours. My teeth do look better than this lioness's however. I am now the proud owner of a new smile . Thank you for all the well wishes yesterday and those who sent pm's.
Have a nice day....

OMG! V2 for me. A fabulous shot. Can't make out if you told her a joke and she's laughing or roaring at you. Either way it's a wonderful capture. Love the other two also but v2 for me today GrinGrin

V3 looks like she is bored with you Colleen and is sticking her tongue out at you

all three worthy of a vote for sure

Colleen, you always say such nice things about my landscapes but real your true life nature images are super. I went to the zoo in Edinburgh once with Ellie I felt so sad when I came across a sea Eagle in a small cage......just not supposed to be.
