    Everything is in sharp focus while the background is nicely blurred.

    is it my imagination or is the nose in focus and the eyes slightly out?

    I can not notice , also mostly overall I try to focus on the eye of a animal, so even if the eyes slightly out of focus, so what ?
    I just wanted to show the image, and I am not out for any first price etc .......

    Griddi - overall it's an excellent image and shows the majesty of the animal.

    Like you, I like going to the zoo, but I have mixed feelings about the constraints put on the animals. For example, when I see a an animal pacing back and forth it's a sign it wants to be roaming - many top-tier predators have very large hunting areas. Countering that is the fact that at least the animals are not being hunted to extinction... It's a difficult call, but probably best solved by having large parks where it is practical, but alas not in a city.

    As others have said, Griddi, it's a great photo, and this particular lion has a great mane, too!

    I can see this image being used in the dictionary to describe the word "REGAL".

    Nice shot!

    I agree with you completely about keeping animals in closures, I also hate horse racing's, incl. anything who animals have to perform for the amusement of people........

    For some years we have now ( I live in a beach suburb of Adelaide ) a free range zoo, called " Monarto " about 80km from Adelaide, one is driven around there with a bus, so only photos through the bus windows, although just about one week ago one can visit the lions sort of " Between them " that is a enclosed space for the visitors, while the lions are roaming free outside.......

    So far I have not visited, but will in the new Year, besides one has to book ahead, cost about $A60.00 , at the moment the big rush is on to this visit, but I will wait till about March, when the weather will be a bit cooler,and hopeful less visitor around .......
