    This is one of a coalition of old male lions who'd been driven off their territory by younger rivals. So figuratively as well as literally he is looking at the sun setting.
    Taken in Kruger NP.

    Hope he's enjoying it as there won't be to many more now he's in exile. Got to feel sorry for the young cubs though.
    From the photography point of view, great subject in wonderful light.

    Great shot of a beautiful cat.

    The background contrasts so beautifully with the subject it's amazing.

    The background colours are beautiful but strange... On my monitor the grasses seem to have a bluish tinge?

    Not meant to be a negative on your image, it is stunning :cool:
