This is my last post for this year. I am on my way to Spain...

Captured in Serengeti area in Tanzania from a car @ 400mm, handhold...

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all and see you nex year.

The lion (Panthera leo) is a mammal of the family Felidae and one of four "big cats" in the genus Panthera. The lion is the second largest cat, after the tiger. The male lion, easily recognized by his mane, weighs between 150-225 kg (330-500 lb). Females range 120-150 kg (260-330 lb). In the wild, lions live for around 1014 years, while in captivity they can live over 20 years. Though they were once found throughout much of Africa, Asia and Europe, lions presently exist in the wild only in Africa and India...
