He was smiling at me


he was smiling at me, originally uploaded by - di.

And I'm not certain I like the way his nose is wrinkling up ...

I didn't notice this until tonight.

yup, look at that nose. He's altogether menacingly beautiful. His mane looks like it was brushed for the photo. This is one of the great animal shots!

Thanks Lydia. It's quite disconcerting taking some of the photographs of the bigger cats ... they seem very close and the wall is incredibly low at the zoo.

Lydia said...

That's quite alarming. Other zoos have had "issues" with that sort of threat....

Um . . . yeah, not sure that's a smile, Di! Looks like a snarl to me, exactly how Husband looks when I touch his lamb chop (literally, not mataphorically).

It's a wonderful image, Di - although smiling isn't what came to mind. :)

No, Di, I think he was thinking how long it was until lunch. ;-)
