Great icesurfer 2011-12-30 9:05

Hello Johanet,

This picture could make the cover of a book about African wildlife!
I like the intense expression in the lion's eyes, and the sharp details of his fangs and mane.
Which lens did you use to zoom so close?

Default To icesurfer: White lions and magic

Hi again,

This baby is so unique. The white genes are truly rare and sadly this guy is in a sanctuary of sorts and not in the wild. I took this photo at the Lion Park just outside of Johannesburg. That is why I could get this close and only used a 70-300 Canon IS lens.
I did however once see a white lion in the wild in the Timbavati game reserve in Mpumalanga province and it was a surreal and hai rraising experience. I think they are magic :-) I have a weird friend that believes they are from the planet Orion and mythical beings..... then again she also believes her pet bearded dragon talks to her.
Happy new year.
