The Cat That Got The Cream ....

By GillyB    
Another from our trip to Chester Zoo, the male lion was very sleepy and the female avoided eye contact at all times unlike the other big cats.They didn't seem as comfortable in their surroundings as the Cheetahs and Tigers in their large enclosures.

Many thanks for your c's and v's on my last one and also to Lin, Dave and Alan for their very valued UA's.

And as always for your time.

I don't think the cream was up to standard - doesn't look to impressed. I'm impressed with the image though - great detail.

Beautiful animals Ron, they deserve so much more ... as do the rest of the threatened wildlife in our world.
Thank you for your award Smile

Thank you Derek, I think we probably took very similar shots as we were both limited to what was possible in the circumstances Smile

Outstanding Image

I like the way her face has crumpled and of course the tongue adds to the shot tremendously.

Well Done
