Lion Cub
This little guy was one of about 20 young cubs with older females in one camp. When I approached he started to snarl and warn me to back off - very brave and practising his intimidation tactics. There are currently 65 lions at this breeding centre as well as a few jaguars and tigers. Very impressive place.

RAW, converted, levels, slight colour adjustment, small smart sharpen, crop slightly, resize and post.

Comments welcome. Thanks for looking

Hi Tim
Long time no hear! A really humorous outjie, love the way his eyes are rolling, and also your title. I would crop just below his chin, tho' to keep the eye in this face.

Great impact Tim. (or should I say tonsils);-)
