Lion Roaring

I haven't been to the Maryland Zoo in awhile and i was happy to see that the relatively new male lion is still quite active in the morning. I don't know if he remembers me from when he first came to the zoo and i would play hide and seek with him, but every time i approached the glass he was vocalizing towards me, almost like he was about to charge at me.


I had over heard someone saying that he is very active and likes to come to the window.


This is GREAT NEWS if you are a lion lover, because at most zoos the lions just sit around and do very little.

1/60 sec

handheld, no flash, through glass

Rubber hood


Photo notes: I am actually shocked this came out so clear at 1/60 of a second. Also, i have been using a rubber hood in place of the default, hard plastic hood so that i can put the rubber hood flat against the glass to block out all glare. It also makes a great protector if you drop or bump it.
