Barbary lion by shoggy Barbary lion by shoggy
Barbary lion Chalid walking his rounds in "Erlebnis-Zoo Hannover", Germany [link]

Already extinct in the wild, there are only 54 of them left in some zoos around the globe. Most of them in the Moroccan National Zoo. With a purposeful breeding they try to keep that species alive.

Was ich beim Löwen an Glück hatte, kam beim Tiger als Pech direkt wieder zurück. Der wiederum lag an dem Tag nur faul in der Sonne :( Und dabei hätte ich von dem viel lieber ein paar schöne Fotos gehabt.

This is a stunning shot. The picture is so clear, and the lion has such a prideful and powerful expression you cannot help but respect him.

Oh my, this image is absolutely stunning! What a good photograph; you must have a very high quality camera, haha. Beautiful, majestic scene that depicts the lion's grandeur quite well. It also is a very good leonine facial reference.

This big boy is beautiful. I am so lovin' his mane, and definitely the stalking pose he's carrying himself in. How absolutely dynamic! Really, very, very quality shot here. Great job! :heart:

I had a bit luck in this case. I "only" paid 810.00 EUR while the regular cheapest price in Germany is 999.00... An electronic store had a special with 19% discount on everything with a price of 300.00 EUR or above. So I was able to get this lens for an awesome price.

Of course it is still a lot of money but I will also keep it for a very long time so I think it is okay ;)
