Lion, photographed at Melbourne Zoo, Victoria, Australia at closing time. This photo was taken on a winter’s day, as the sun was moving below the tree-line – casting a warm glow over the scene.

    Lovely warm colors, even though its in a zoo it gives the impression of a hot African day and the lion is resting under a tree with the heat reflecting off the surrounding bush. Do I have an imagination or what?

    Thanks also, NevilleCowan and SpaceAce07. Neville, you are imaginative indeed. There is no suggestion of the concrete bridge on which I stood and the kid next to me vigorously rattling the wire fencing (bokka bokka bokka!) through which I was trying to shoot!
