The one on the left seems to say "Oh why do I have to endure this again". Anyway, great portrait!

Lol, good one. Or perhaps he's dreaming of a younger partner. His lady (to the right) is a few years older than him :D

I've looked through your gallery, and you truly are an amazing photographer. I have a question, though. Was there anything between you and the lions? :]
Reply
:iconkeldbach:
KeldBach Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
Thanks a lot for your kind words. Both the lions and tigers are fenced in and there's also a moat inside, so you can't reach and touch them. But there's no glass, so it feels like you're pretty close to them :)

KT4HIMx Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2010
I was only windering, because in the photo it didn't look like there was anything between you, which I thought was quite clever of you to capture :D

Well, I also use a 300mm telephoto lens, so I can get real close from a safe distance :D
