Hi Gary, Thanks, I think Leopards are for me what perhaps Eagles are for you (Only the Leopards are Generally easier to shoot, except perhaps at night time), Love everything about them. The 600f/4 V2 is my first 600, and this was it's first outing, didn't get too much use on this trip as the Bush was reasonably thick in March, but I'm off to Tanzania in June, then Svalbard for Polar Bears in September, which is what the 600 was purchased for, lovely Lens but really only just starting to get to know it, the 300f/2.8 & 400f/2.8 V2 Lenses have been my main stay to date, cant fault these Lenses in any way, well, perhaps with the exception of Price, but I firmly believe you mostly get what you pay for.

This Guy is called the "Hip Scar Male", obviously because he has a bad scar on his Hip, but I have never seen another Lion with Eyes like this One, blazingly bright yellow, very strange, he is One large male of a Coalition of 4 Brothers that happily share a large area and several prides of Females, very Handsome bunch of Guys, his Brothers don't share the same Eyes as this guy, and although they are all Brothers, Only one of them has a Black Mane, and he is the Alpha of the group and a complete and Total Thug, but very cool just the same.
