Could well be. Previously with African Wild Dogs front lit the animal AF worked pretty well. Yep, beautiful young male in his prime. He may well be the father of four cubs that were born a few weeks back. So utterly content with his place in the pecking order for now - such that he just sleeps alone and doesn't bat an eyelid when a bunch of jabbering techno monkeys (i.e. us) roll up in a car. From his face he has faced a few battles. Male lions do not have an easy life at all. But there is nothing more impressive than one in his middle aged prime with a mane and a pride and not very much to fear. Apart from us humans.... And taking down buffalos which is inherently super risky but pays off in terms of feasting for the family.

A ridiculous reaction I know but when I saw him I felt like asking him if he'd like a zoom groom. Maybe it's because I did all three of my cats today (they love the little rubber brush) and he looks like a contented boy who'd roll over for a tummy tickle.

Even in person I wanted to stroke him!  I know a few people (there are some mad people in my world) that have raised lions and leopards.  The appeal (and the risk) is very real.... We did raise a common duiker orphaned in a wild fire.  Even such a small baby antelope could make horizontal 3m leaps and fling our cat off her neck when he got a bit ambitious.  Norman Carr who was a pioneering colonial type here had two male lions - google him as it is fascinating stuff.

Re: Mini Riva

In this case this processing seems to work quite well.

Re: About the Light

Nice contrast between sun lighted field and those dark clouds.

Re: The wild water at the Kitzlochklam Ravine

It's challenge to pass along water power and noise it makes to photo viewers, these photos do it quite well.

Re: Saint or Sinner.

It's easy to put statue to Lenin if you believe his words and don't know what the regime he helped to create did...

11th photo with 3 "steps" is nice find.

Re: From a recent trip

First is fun for all, for riders, probably for photographer and for sure for viewers.

Great set. The padlock on the wire I would like to know more. The SS was really high but it almost looks like the wire was moving up and down but you got the padlock perfectly sharp.

Thanks, very kind.

The padlock and wire both static. I think the blur from the 7artisans 35mm is crazy. Padlock is sharp. It made me wonder when I edited it. RAW in capture one.

Everything goes

Didn't know that great reed-warblers eat fish, but for feeding offspring everything goes.

Is it safe out there? Gread reed-warbler.

Re: Everything goes

I guess finding out about how they live and feed is part of the fun of bird photography.

Nice shots!

I bet he would have liked that. A nice groom before his fresh meat dinner
