Hi all, yeah, I know, another lion shot - However, I'm posting this to show how an ordinary "face" can be transformed by extraordinary light. BTW, we really don't see many lions, it's just when I do,I shoot as many shots as possible:-)

Wild, Hung.

About 20ft from this chap at the time of shooting,. he then walked closer next to my window, I shot a few pics, but they blurred [some due to excitement, some due to very low light at the time:G]
