This is what happens to people who annoy a lion by photostalking him. Don't even ask what happened to his barber.


I took this a few years ago on a trip to the San Francisco Zoo with my wonderful mother and my cool flickr friend Peedge, who came all the way from Ireland to visit.


School starts again tomorrow, but it's one of my New Year's Resolutions to stay fairly active on flickr and not let work consume my whole life again this year. Of course, I've never actually stuck with a NY resolution before...but let's be positive! There's always a first time for everything! :-)

  • Michael Woodgate 4y

    Not sure if he looks angry or hungry or both. I do know that I would want a very large zoom and a friend who could not run as fast as me ;). Nice pic...wouldn't know it was in a zoo if you had not have said.
