I know that it has been a while, but I do sincerely appreciate everyone's kind comments about this photo. I have never seen a lion curl his tongue like this before, so it was kinda cool to capture it at exactly the right moment.

I had to come back and comment again on this, having just seen it today, blown up to poster size, hanging in the Museum of Natural History's "Best of Nature Photography" display. Congratulations on the win in that magazine's contest, as well as the honor of your image hanging in the museum!
