Alright! I meant to critique this the second I saw it but, I didn't have enough time to write up something worth reading. So, here I go!
Once again you have done an amazing job at capturing nature at its finest. Even in this enclosed habitat these animals are still living as if they were in their natural habitat. The way you captured the lighting is very interesting. All the light seems to be coming at you and along the way it just enhances everything right down to the claw marks/teeth marks on the wood. There is a great balance between light and dark as well. You see the shadows real well in the female lion and in the tree in the background.
The big male seems to be the center of this picture but the great thing about that is, is that he doesn't stop the flow of the overall look. One thing that really contributes to this is the fact that you have a foreground, middleground, and background.
This is just such an absolutely well timed and amazingly captured photograph. Wonderful work!
What do you think?

Brian,
What an absolute delight to view. Lucky, lucky you! A shot all photographers hope to catch. Don't they just look at ease with the world, must be a good zoo?
By the way like the way you title your work. Sometimes titles can make all the difference!
Thank you so much for sharing this.
Simon

:) Do you know if he is a younger lion? Almost looks like he is still growing his mane out ~ (At least compared to the male lions I've seen who all have very long, huge manes.)

Not a big deal if you can't but if just made me curious :) I don't know how long it takes for a lion to grow in a full, long mane ~

Their names are Azizi and Amara and they were both acquired in the last few years as cubs

I guess that would answer your question,I think

Thanks Amber
