When I came upon Mufasa (Panthera Leo)(one of my many trips to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo), he was in the perfect position, with his head up.. towards the sun. Once my camera was in the right spot.. he looked over at me and I got a lot of good shots. He definitely went to “pose” school and it paid off that day. There was something about him that just said I had to do this piece..
