Re: Sleeping Beauties Absoloutely splendid Eric, in all my years of visiting zoos I've never seen three Lions asleep together, ever.
This must be a prizewinning shot in any competition. All the best, Mike.
Re: Sleeping Beauties Thank you all for your kind comments,the image was taken at a private zoo at Smarden in Kent it was arranged by"Photographers on Safari".When we arrived at the compound the lions were all asleep but the noise of the group awoke one lion,well he opened one eye now that was the shot to have but i was'nt ready I was still getting my camera out of the bag.I agree with you Graham-c it would make a good advert for Nytol.ERIC

Re: Sleeping Beauties Morning Caroline,you have nothing to worry about and plenty to look forward to.the guy that runs the days out is very nice and helpful.I have been on two workshops with him and both have been very good he will give tuition if you need it.Depending what you want to take will depend on what lenses you take i normally take a 70-200 and a 100-400 set an iso of 200 on the camera and use an aperature of f5.6-f8.0 .ERIC
