Majestic king

Took this shot today in less than perfect scenario, did adjust levels some, and resized to 300dpi. He is certainly a proud specimen

Yes, he does look like a King surveying his kingdom. Crisp and clear and the lighting is perfect to show off his subtle brown and grey colours. Well done!

Well captured.
You must have been pretty close to him - behind an enclosure?!?

My partner Tracey was complaining (oops mentioning) that there was not enough room for such a big wandering beast, but I explained to her that zoo's these days are there for the conservation of a species rather than captivation, and if there was enough room in the world they would not be becoming extinct.
