"No kidding!", Lion

The new cat is a big cat

Big or small, there is something of a house cat in all felines…

Look at the eyes of a lion or a tiger, they have such a deep stare. To me, they are ideally designed for hunt, they are ruthlessly efficient and they best represent nobility in nature…

It’s no wonder that Apple has named each version of its desktop operating system after a big cat… (I wonder which one they’ll pick for the next version)

When I’m pointing the lens at a feline, I always feel my lens attracted by the beast’s eyes… I’m glad not to be its prey, it would rip me apart faster than I would need to tell it…

But after a short while, the noble animal will be doing something that will remind me, regardless how big or scary it is, of a domestic cat… it is cute, funny and makes me wonder if they are purring (but don’t scratch the head of a lion if you’ve not been invited to do it by its care taker… )

I’ve often tried to capture both moments: the highest of its nobility and when it’s just a cat…

Do have a look at the Felines in the Mammals gallery.
