lion, melbourne, zoo

I’m just getting back in photography after a long spell with just a point and shoot digital.

In June 2011, I bought my first DSLR and have become infected with the photography bug for the second time in my life.

I am in awe of the talent here on Red Bubble and that inspires me to become a better photographer.

Thanks for stopping by……… :)

    He’s a beauty, and they eye contact is compelling!

  • He was indeed a beauty Celeste and there were two others that looked remarkably like this one too. When he reached the fence you really got a sense of how big he was. Thankyou for taking the time to stop by and leave your comment and also for your favourite. :)
