Outstanding full framed portrait of this majestic lion taken with great clarity, wonderful lighting and terrific expression, Stephen! #4794003

Great details and colors, Stephen! You'll love that lens. It is so versatile and mobile. I now have a 120-300mm f2.8 Sigma but it is large and heavy so the 80-120mm Nikon lives on! #4794168

WOW! This is an amazing capture. The lighting is simply wonderful on this. It helps to bring out just the right colors and mood.

This should be a Picture of the Day.

You definitely have a special gift for this.

Thank you for using it and sharing it.
