Times are hard in the Lion Enclosure at Colchester Zoo ………

“So I lie here acting dead and when the Gazelles come over to gloat I grab one of ’em ?? Is that it ????”

“Hope you’re not too hungry tonight.”

Thanks for looking, Nick

    Thanks all, there’s some real characters at this zoo.
    Yes it’s a shame they’re in a zoo, but at least they are alive.. and safe… and very well looked after.

    Best wishes Nick

    Love this shot Nick. I love the big cats. The detail is great. One could almost reach into the screen & pat him. Yes, maybe a ‘cunning plan’.

  • Yes, they’re my favourites too, this one has a lovely face, Nick
