Yes that'a fine array of teeth you captured!
I'm not sure if this cub has the full compliment of teeth yet but his mouth look as if he's in good health!
Nice POV and excellent contrasting BG.
Thanks and great to hear you're almost recovered.
Have a good weekend,

Great photo of this open mouth of the lion cub (Piet is an old dutch name). Okay the quality is not superb, but it is very nice to see him yawning. Is this photo taken in a spotlight of the car? Great sharpness and details. Taken from the best POV and a nice contrast against the dark BG.
Have a nice weekend and a good recovery,

First - I am really glad that you have the cast off and you are semi-mobile :)
The shot is great - despite a little noise - your timing is perfect.

What is this? "Cats gone wild", maybe?:)
It looks a bit like myself this morning at the dentist...
Funny,espressive photo; now get back to your birds!:)

What a fitting photo for me to be viewing right now. It is almost midnight and I've been yawning for the past half hour. Rosie went upstairs around 10:00 and I told her I'd be right behind her, well you can see how far that got me!! I can't believe how time flies when you are viewing photos on TN.
Let's get back to your photo... I love the BIG wide yawn and great detail you managed to capture. Just think about it..this is what a dentist has to look at every day..YUCK.
Well I'll now take my cue from your little wide mouthed friend and head off to dream land. TFS. Good Night...ZZZZZZZ

wow...what a big mouth this lion got.
Nice capture and the right moment.
the teeth are so sharp in its physical sense and also very sharply taken.
Very special shot to vary from the rest.
- matatur (5312)
- [2010-01-23 3:14]
A dentist would love this soo detailed capture Anna, the in-depth lighting is perfect and the salient facial features of the beautiful animal are rendered quite nicely here against the darkish BG, a good effect indeed!
TFS and cheers...
P.s.: must have missed some fine images in TN lately, was trying to brush-off a terrible cold...

Yeeeeeeeeeeah!!! We all try and get a shot like this one! Well done, Anna, I always wanted to know what the inside of a lion's mouth looked like :-)
But jokes aside, a photo is so much improved if you get some sort of action or movement, even a yawn like this one makes for a special photo.
- red45 (31094)
- [2010-01-23 8:54]
Believe me or not, but I started to yawn, when I saw your photo :-) This is what I call good photo :-) And lots of violet (?) colours :-) I like it!

Yeeeeeah, You're free again! We all wish You health and happiness, and of course great lights for taking as fantastic photographies as You've done. Yeah, technical- or rather timing-wise this isn't the most perfect pic You've ever done, but this time it doesn't count at all, You captured the moment quite well, and even if not razor-sharp, the image's quite pleasant to the eyes (and as I see, not only to mine). Congrats and tfs.
Friendly regards from the Hungarian winter, László

Sharp teeth. Good catch. I see that you use your Sony Cybershot diligently. Many fine images you have photographed. But I think you should have been retained the canon 450d which you won. believe me at my word is much easier to shoot with an SLR. It is not necessary to use all the features of an SLR if you dont wont to.
Best regards Anders

As you say in your notes, the technical aspects of the picture are not perfect: there's a little lack of sharpness and the lighting looks like the picture would be taken with a flashlight.
But you are right when you say you just love the picture and therefore felt like posting it. I love it, too, and sometimes a picture is worth a posting even if it isn't technically perfect. This is the case when the subject or the expression of the picture is stronger than the technical aspects. Your image is very expressive and impressive! Moreover, it's very original and demonstrates how much it's safer to stand away from such teeth!

understand that the world crisis so much bored .... it has got this lion yawning?
Or ... mad as small portion of meat was thought to protest?
Just kidding, that it not only costs money, right?
Employment and superb play. Superb capture.

I was glad to read he was yawning and not threatening you!! Great timing to get this awesome shot with the big opened mouth. I think he just wanted to show you his beautiful teeth and tongue :-). Great shot and another once in a lifetime event.

This yawning fellow is so funny and I'm so happy to read that you are allright now..Somehow I missed this shot, so excuse my delay. And I must confess that I already had to yawn too,looking at your lion, but not because the picture is boring :-).
Have a nice wekend

This is a rather cute image of a Lion yawning. It's looks like a young lion as it's teeth are still fairly white. Love the colour of it's mount too as it's a nice bright pink colour. Well done Anna.
