The Wild Animal Sanctuary: Animals in Black and White

The Wild Animal Sanctuary is home to 200 lions, tigers, black bears, grizzly bears, wolves, leopards, cougars, and other carnivores.  Some we rescued from circuses, zoos (closed by the government),, but most were held in captivity as ''pets" by misguided individuals.

The lions were mostly sleeping.  But this guy woke up in time for a picture.

Camera:  Minolta SRT-202
Lens:  Tamron 28-200 f/2.8 zoom
Film:  Ilford Delta ISO 400  (I find that ISO 100 is grainier)
Filter:  Yellow
