A lion with attitude

I needed to relax so badly... it was a stressful week. I decided to go go for a mini-safari at the Brookfield Zoo. The weather was superb so I just grabbed my 1D Mk2N and 100-400 mm IS on a monopod. Bad luck: most of the animals were sleepy and the whole place was so crowded! I just took a long hike around, enjoyed the exhibitions I was interested to see and by the time I was ready to leave, I noticed the lion was slowly coming back to life.
Oh boy! What a beautiful, majestic animal! He's got some attitude too, I really like the expression he's putting in some of the shots, almost like he was posing for me.
