Here's just a sampling of some of the new shots... the first one came out amazing and is probably in my top 3 photos of all time... I love his "dreamy" look and I wonder what was going through his mind when I snapped the shot! It's kinda like he's in his own little world :) This lion's name is Hubert and he's been living at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, WA for about a year and half now, he's a South African (Panthera leo krugeri) purebred lion originally from the Nashville Zoo.
He usually goes out of his way to avoid eye contact with humans so I thought this was highly unusual but I visit so often I know they do recognize me - especially the lioness, Kalisa.
I hope you guys enjoy the photos of these amazing animals and to check out more (I'll be posting more tonight) click my gallery link at the top of the page.
