My Fav lions at the zoo, it was nap time.
one leaning on the sleeping one and the other about to roll off the edge.
The middle one who was a little perturbed at the fact that this one was leaning on him, got up and leaned over his back whispered in his ear..probably something like " get off now or I will bite you"
when he didnt move the middle lions bit his neck, the whole time the other one is just looking around as if to say, “there are people watching go ahead and make a fool of yourself”..
well he didnt move and the other lion did just that straddled him and started to bite his neck…
I will show a series of the shots to help highlight the story a bit. enjoy, I know i
taken on sony A200 -100-300 lens..
some shots have been cropped for effect.
Images auto contrasted and highlighted in Picassa 3.
