I have always wanted to photograph a Barbary Lion. I discovered that the Out Of Africa Wildlife Park in Arizona had one on display. I combined one of my Arizona canyon photography trips with a visit to this wildlife park. The day I was there, the early morning light highlighted his famous mane. I used my telephoto lens to get a tight portrait. It was well worth the drive and effort to obtain this image.
