Leaping Leo!

#Bloganuary Writing Prompt: What is your favorite photo you’ve ever taken?

Well I didn’t take it, but my camera was used. I was with a small group at a conservation park in Gweru, Zimbabwe. Lion cubs are raised in captivity, then taught to range before being released into the wild. We had just completed two weeks of liaison work with Zimbabwe Churches of Christ in the rural south, and this was part of our relaxation – walking through some savannah with a pair of lions so they could pick up some ranging skills!

Why do I like it?
1. Never in all my days had I imagined I’d be chilling out with a pair of lions.
2. I like anything conservation related.
3. I recall my younger self being challenged to abandon my timid mouse persona and release the inner lion! So perhaps there is something totemic about this image.

Anyhow, there it is – not exactly answering the prompt, but near enough.
