My Entry for 's Contest "Direct eye Contact".
I took this photo at Paradise Wildlife Park as I wanted to get some nice shots of the White Lions they have there as I have never seen one before. So here we have a picture of the male lion Moto. He was absolutely stunning and my heart was in my mouth when he looked at me, allowing me to get this shot which has become one of my favourites so far. Actually, shortly after this shot he got up and growled in my face. I was grateful for the mesh and fence between me and Moto.

yeesh, those eyes are cold. Great shot as well.
Arn't they great, they have quite a few more at a Zoo in Kent.
Oh which one is that?
WHF, Smarden, nr. Ashford
Oh yes! I've heard of them but it's rather pricey . Looks amazing though.
Pricey yes but its roll is a breeding centre, they have around 30 BIG cats there, then on a visit you are quite liable to be the only visitor there and you would have your own personel keeper. Every year around the end of July they have an open day, where altough visitors per day are limited (1000 or so per day) need to book on internet, it is open for three or four days, so if your in the area, not an opportunity to miss.
Lovely lion there! I've never seen a white lion in person - they look so beautiful!
He was beautiful and niether had I. They are strange but in a good way. Hehe. Thanks so much for the comment .
The face is just impressive. Conveys a lot of strength.
Actually growled at you, huh? Hmmm....what did you do to him, I wonder? hahahaha!
Haha! Oh nothing at all. Just took his picture. Maybe he wasn't happy about that .
Great that you got such a close up shot! So you can pick up all the fur details and fluffiness of his mane. He looks very serious! Lovely photo!
Amazing!! Are you going to send it to a contest?
Love this one ^_^
Ooh, he's beautiful, isn't he? I'd love to brush that mane if I didn't think he'd bite my head off. XD Brilliant shot Hann!
Thanks Chel! Haha yes I wouldn't. He might bite
A pleasure! ^^ Haha, it's so tempting, the allure of a big cat, they look so cuddly but they couldn't be more different from the common house-moggy, unless they were bred in a domestic environment. :3 So cute, I'd love to raise a big cat from a cub if it were legal and humane~
