The first exhibit I went to on Friday was the lion habitat at the NC zoo. The male lion was being lazy back under a tree, but the lioness, WOW!, just look at her. I think she was soaking up the sunshine and just waking up to the day. She looked so beautiful sitting on the rock ledge.
I spent about fifteen minutes taking pictures of her, but wanted to get to the gorilla exhibit before the day got too hot. So reluctantly I moved on to the gorillas. I could have spent a lot more time with her.
The other images are of the baby gorillas. Enjoy
