Johnny, very impressing this lion. well done, I like it, never before I had seen so clear the tees and the tongue.

Yep, the lion does look like he's yawning. If he was roaring, I think his tongue would be farther back in his mouth.

Not sure what you mean by prime lens. Its a 100-300mm Cannon lens which I used to use on my Canon EOS film camera. On a digital camera it increases the range to around 400mm or more I think.

Incredible capture of the lion. Did you use a 400 prime lens?

Thanks for comments, I stayed behind the safety of wire netting and a 400mm lens.John

Doh! Should be "life and limb", obviously!

What a fantastic image! Sometimes just a single image seems to capture the complete essence of its subject and this one really communicates "lionness" if that word exists! I rather wish you hadn't told us it was yawning, as I'd imagined you as the intrepid photographer risking like and limb to capture this brilliant shot!

Terrific capture.
