The Mane Man by stray_shooter

The Mane Man

I had a little time to devote to hitting Wild Animal Park today. I got lucky and found the lions to be awake. They sleep something like 23.5 hours per day, so to catch them not only not sleeping but actually moving was a huge stroke of luck. I'm sure he felt the same way about seeing me. My entry for this week's Challenge 52 theme, which is masculinity. Best on black.
Amazing closeup! Love the open mouth, lolling tongue and details in the fur.

Apologies for the group reply. And apologies in advance for the coming sparse comments and responses. I'm going to be a little distracted for the next few weeks, but will be doing my best to keep up. The good news is that another of my mult-week motorcycle adventures will begin again soon, so I hope to be bringing you along on my journey, although posts might be a bit sporadic.
