The Lion's Den by Kendra-Paige The Lion's Den by Kendra-Paige
I have a soft spot for big cats, and I was overjoyed when I stumbled upon the king near a waterfall.

So, you were actually here? You actually took this picture? Where is this?? This is such an exotic shot that I thought it was photomanip.

I would love to be in a place where I could take pictures like this!!

Kendra-Paige Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013   Photographer
Thank you for your kind words! This isn't a photomanipulation, it's a photograph.

This was taken at Miami Metro in Florida, where they had various areas that were very exotic and beautiful, like this cliff with the waterfall. It was taken after a lot of rain when the lighting was a little more dim and moody, which really helped to pull all of this together.

Thank you again!

You're very welcome! :iconhowdyplz:

Yeah, that's an epic shot! Must be, that the lion felt like cooling off, so headed for the waterfall -- before his lion instincts decided on being beautiful, but typically lazy! (Lions are EPICALLY lazy creatures! Always lying about, while yawning widely. And yes, they really love to sleep!! :giggle:)

Still, they are majestic! :wow: :jawdrop:

Thanks for sharing!! : hug:
