    Good shot!
    Odd how such a ferocious animal, can have breath which smells of honey.
    Not that this one looked ferocious..just knackered !

  • Thanks Caroline – …Breath which smells of honey? (thats pure poetry!)

    Great detail and timing, is this a re-shoot or from one of our earlier trips?

  • This was taken today. My first time at the zoo with the 50D.
