Ha Daniel,

Ik zie dat ik niet de enige ben die verslaafd is (of aan het worden) aan safari (fotografie),gelukkig zijn er meer te vinden op TN,dit is een prachtig portret van de king to be,fraaie kleuren,mooie composite,bedankt,


Hi Daniel

Very nice shot


Well done, Daniel.
Good aspect ratio 1:1.
Yes, I guess this is a young male.
Very good natural colors and well exposed as for example the highlights are well detailed.
I think care about the savanna grasses in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing your young king...
