Superb capture with wonderful postwork. I remember watching a documentary on lions some years ago, and there was a featured lion whose name was Intuidamela, (I know I spelled that wrong) but his name translates to "He who runs like smoke" in the Masai language. He was given the name because of the darker hair of his mane. I thought of that when I saw this, and I have to say that the association was an extremely pleasant one for me. This is great work! Yeah, and okay...my birth sign is Leo, so naturally I'd love this reference to the great Nemaean Lion of the same name!
