    Hello guys!
    It was a very busy day at the zoo as it was the first time showing the baby lions.
    Several news papers sent people there and I was confused several times for one of them so I guess at least I kind of look like a photographer

    Anyways, many images but here is one of the first I took. Pretty much a 100% crop from the original.

    Here is the original for reference:

    Great shot! That little guy has star qualities 4 sure. If you were staging his pose, you couldn't do it better.

    Crazy detail in that crop. That FD A7RII combo is sharp!!!

    Great shot! He's probably getting accustomed to the shutters.

    Really nice shot.
    Do you know, is the cub male or female?

    Thanks!
    I think this one is male. There are 2 males and one female but it's hard trying to determine which one is it from the portrait images they posted for identification lol

    They better be cause people is crazy for them. Thanks :)
