That is a very nice set. Of all three sets, I think I like the lion in #9 the best. I think #12 might be one of my coworkers . . .

That lion looks like he is staring you down. It's like he knows that he is being photographed and you can see how proud and defiant he is looking. The strength
of this photo is that you capture his face very well. There is a nobility to his demeanor. He face tells the story. Really great capture.

Thanks guys. The lion was in that sort of mood. Usually he sits/lays on his platform and looks regal from a distance.



Although sometimes he plays...

Very cool series, Darren! I really like the 1st & 2nd! Don't get to see white tigers too often! Seems like I saw some 6 years or so ago at the Memphis(Tennessee) Zoo. They are very majestic animals!

Here's another one for you, Ron. Shot this summer in BorĂ¥s Zoological Garden, Sweden. They are very proud of their white tigers.

Fantastic shot Kjell. I wanted to get something like that, but the zoo doesn't allow that sort of approach for its white Tiger.

You have really captured him well, and not lost any of the highlights. Areal problem with the white fur.

I think that the tiger I shot is seeing out his days at the zoo now. It has been there at least 10 years, maybe more, and just paces round the enclosure.

Apparently he killed his mate a few years ago.

Disaster strikes.

Changing some things on my computer and an error occured and crashed the drives. All pictures not backed up lost! Tropical Wings, with the macro shots of butterfiles and the recent zoo pictures, gone forever!

Lesson learnt - always, always backup photos, just in case!
