The second post from yesterdays trip to Chester Zoo, this time concentrating on the Asiatic Lions, very much threatened in the wild, but Chester have great success in breeding these stunning beasts. Today when we arrived they were asleep on their large table, but when they did rouse there was lots of yawning, which showed off their impressive teeth. I then was lucky enough to get some nice shots of an intimate moment under the trees, as these magnificent kings of the jungle showed they have a real soft tender side to. Sharon is chomping at the bit to get her paints out, cant wait to see the results of whatever photos she chooses to paint, but these and a lot more can be seen on her blog site HERE
Hope you enjoy the Lions, please feel free to leave any comments.
