Splendid picture of these lions. Just amazing...they do not look like they are captive.

Thank you all most kndly. You can not beat the feeling of putting up a picture on betterphoto before you go to bed only to wake up in the morning and find 11 comments. Thank you all so much. Funny this pic was sitting there for almost a year before I considered it good enough to enter here.

John your picture (and the rest of your gallery is stunning), if I may point out to Melissa - they're not captive, they're in their natural environment, check this link for more info http://www.magicalkenya.com/default.nsf/doc21/4YGEX3ADMY6?opendocument&l=1&e=2
Hopefully it'll wet your appetites to come to Africa - the Mara is possibly one of the most amazing photographic experiences, and if you can be there when the 'migration' take place (I think September), you'll be blown away - for days and days on end, there are hundreds and thousands of wildebeest on the move, and they just don't stop coming! I've not had the privilege of visiting the Mara, but know all about it! (hey we have some pretty good game in SOUTH Africa) but its on my 'to do' list! Hopefully pix and links like this will inspire you to travel South - but be warned, bring a lot of equipment, lots and lots of memory cards, and prepare to fall in love :)

WOW! Fantastic capture! They just exude bravado and young male attitude! They could be a group of teenagers at the mall by and the facial expressions would be recognizable! :)

Exposure, composition, color, and DOF are all spot-on!!

Congrats on the POTD!

Congrats John. How special that must feel POTD. Someday perhaps.

Nice capture/composition/bokeh. All together one of those near perfect shots. Would you mind posting the EXIF? Thanks & you don't have to respond directly to me. You have a lot of others.
