Hi Mark,

Great expression and lighting!

You seem to spend a great deal of time at the Marwell Zoo.
I subscribe to Practical Photography and they had some feature on this particular zoo.

Personally, I find your images far more inspiring and superior to those presented in the magazine!

You are doing a fantastic job!

Your fan. #17823

Robert, Thank you very much for the best compliment I have ever received on my photography. You have made my day!!

Marwell Zoo is an amazing place and as an animal lover I can think of nothing better than to walk among some of the most beautiful of Gods creations. Marwell is deticated to the preservation of some of the most endagered animals in the world and have a very successful breeding program. #38276

Exquisite Mark. I am at a loss for words on this one. Being a huge lover for the big cats, especially African wildlife, I am numb.... and jealous! I spent a year in Africa and never got even close (only dreaming) of getting a shot like this!! Well Done :) #38410
