Lion Nawiri looking to the sky (I admit, no stars here in bright daylight! ;) ).

January 2012/ Nikon D300s/ Nikkor 300mm 4,0

ISO 320/ F 4/ 1/250 sec

I like it very much n-n
the light hits exactly in the right places and I love how the lion seems to be looking at his domains or something xD
There's a story behind the lion and I love how your picture seems to let us imagine his history.
the contrast with the background is really good, this picture is truly amazing.

I don't see anything bad in it, is perfect n-n. But you didn't add a signature O_O for an amazing picture as this it is very important to add it, for if it doesn't have a signature people could take it from google without giving you any credit.
What do you think?
