Feb 27, Aslan

Aslan is a lion who lived at the Wild Cat Sanctuary to his old age, a few years ago, and I wanted to be sure and do him justice.  I don't think he was that old in this photo, but it never ceases to amaze me how elegant and superior some animals can be... maybe I mean regal, but that's the word that popped out.  The tilt of his head, and that crown of a mane, and those eyes looking down the length of his nose all contribute to the impression of royalty.  Even if it was the girls who took down the zebras and did all the work.  I like this one.
