A closer look at a wild animal. Not a monkey that will be too easy...
Challenge has finished
As the title says. Please show us a very closed look at the face of a wild animal. Not the whole body and not an animal far in the distance. The animal must take at least 70% of the frame. I am not going to measure the percentage or to D.Q. if it is only 65% but just to clarify the idea of the challenge.

Lioness in the Ngorongoro crater. She was completely indifferent to the 10 or so Land Rovers crowded around her. I think the flies on her nose is a nice touch.
