  14. We had new baby tigers at our zoo a few months ago -- a boy and a girl. It was amazing how fast they grey.

  15. ooooh, what a gorgeous family. I wish they we roaming wild on the Serengeti and you had gotten the photos with your telephoto lens while they were in the wild, but they are lovely pics just the same !(my first lion porn...looks a little dangerous !)

  24. Fabulous photos. Hard for me to decide if I like the b/w or color best -- they both bring their mood and I'm glad you decided to share both of my favorite wild animal!

    Large cats are such fabulous creatures. Too bad we can't just step over the fence and pet them.
