Hello Patrick,
Very good focus as the lion is sharp. A lot of light in the Serengeti apparently and that's good for a photographer..
Well done

bonjour Patrick

Even though you may be quite new here [just 2 weeks before I joined], you have some great photos here on wildlife and I have picked one of yours as my theme choices because I think you are good at photography.

For this shot, the FL300mm gives you very good focus sharpness of the lion. The light condition seems good although I can see it is impossible for you to avoid that grass.

I have not done a safari, so I will ask a few questions about this capture, if you wont mind.

.the eyes are a little dark, you know why?
.FL420mm, but yr lens is 300mm?
.1.4x converter used perhaps?

I know it is out of question but I would wish to see the mouth of the lion :)

Very nice work.

Greetings from Malaysia.
tfs, bill

Excellent!!!!!!!!!! This shows how well adapted are these animals to their habitat! TFS!
