Wow.... Only looking on mob device - but I'd swear that is artwork and not a photograph!  Great shot!  I love to see images which make one pause and think / wonder.

I just realized the powershot is some description of a beginner? OK.

Thanks for the comments guys!

The first one was shot with a 5D Mark II with the 24-105L, the two others with 5D Mark III, 70-200 f2.8 IS Mk II ( the family portrait was with an 2.0 Extender Mk III also).

As a wild cat fanatic (and zoo lover) myself, I really like the lion - unique pose.  The first one of the lemur is also hilarious - looks just like he is meditating.  Of course the peacock is great too as everyone has said.  Free roaming peacocks are good for photos, it is just a pet peeve of mine as a zoo docent and frequent zoo traveller that most zoos have them.  They are native to India so it drives me nuts seeing them wandering through the Africa or South America section of a zoo.  (Not that it has anything to do with your photo, which is fantastic).

The big cats are a lot of fun when they are in a cooperative mood. Here is another one:
