A day late but for a good reason.

Yesterday evening we were at the zoo after the normal opening hours and when this lion lady was lying just in front of us I couldn’t resist taking a portrait of her.

Just another photo of a lion you could say and you’re probably right. However, I love the details in the face and keep in mind that the images on this website here are only have 50% – 70% of the original quality.

Reason enough to click on the image for a larger version that is also less compressed.

Speedlight: Canon 580 EX II
