    Very nice Stuart, the third image is wonderful. Something about the lion's head-tilt and expression really catch my attention.

    Thanks Frank..she was looking straight at me in that one..these were shot through horrible tinted glass at the zoo so colour version isn't brilliant but converting to black and white salvaged them a bit..

    I'm not big on wildlife in B/W but you made it look very nice with composition and detail.
