Luckily you were still able to post this shot Gerhard. She looks intent on eating either you or your camera. Excellent DOF and very nice composition. Good work.

Nice cub, Gerhard! Real ambusher, I like its face and pose. Great composition with lion partially hidden by grass. Looks like you had got hot time :-)

Beau portrait animalier. Le regard est très intéressant. J'aime les herbes devant le visage ça donne un petit coté sauvage à la prise. Merci pour l'envoi et bonne journée.

Well, it work for me...I think it's a great picture of a stalking manouvere. Well seen Gerhard and wel executed. I like the low POV, make you feel like the hunted. Good work.

Excellent shot. Great composition and presentation. It was a risk as the blurred grass could have been a distracting point in the photo. It wasn't. :) I bet you were pretty far away since you were able to live and tell (read: post this picture). TFS

Gerhard, Yes, I like it very much. You've composed the shot very well & the blades of grass fanned across only the bottom portion of the face give the illusion of "stealth"! Great sharpness & detail - Well done!!

Hi, Gerhard. So here we have another cool shot. Needless to say that composition is just perfect. Very nice POV. It's not just another lion photo. And, after all, I see no problem in shooting just another lion photo. To me, they're always welcome, and I wish they were around for me to shoot.
Another great job of yours.

Personal assessment of the photo: a great one.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment: difficulty for the photographer during the capture: a not easy to capture with those things in front of the subject.
Personal assessment of the note: a great one.
Yes, I enjoy the post.

Nice shot Gerhard,
I wasn't sure about the grass in the FG at first, but it does give the photo something extra.
Nice POV, detail and capture
Thanks for posting

This is very nice indeed Gerhard. I like the way she is locked in focus between the grasses. Detail is stunning also. Well done.

Yes Gerhard I do enjoy the post. We do not have this kind of animals in Canada, and it's a pleasure to look at such a good picture. The grass in the foreground adds to the ambush theme and creates a dramatic effect. Very well done.
Dat werk nou so moet interfere met 'n mens se plesier! This is a very nice youngster, you can see the playfulness and also that you might quickly endup on the menu side of things, as he is no baby anymore. Nice with the bit of camo grass, right out of the environment, does not bother me at all.
Sorry about the bad light you had, I had not the best day either on Saturday.
The LBJ is A zitting, but could be a desert. It would be good to discuss it directly with Philip, as he will tell you the whys and maybes etc. I can let you have his number.
Sorry I write here, but time!
Do you think is she yawining? Are you so boring?
