What an amazing shot. These are the sort of shots i'm dreaming of taking.
Can't wait until i can afford a big L lens.
Not that i'm saying it was just due to the lens, as i know it wasn't, at all.
Brilliant photo.

Just saying that this is beautiful seems to be a bit simplistic, but this is beautiful.

One of my favorites in this challenge.Very nice composition and makes us want to lay down and sleep next to him (maybe not my best idea ;-))

Good image and composition. Worthy of and simlar can be found in Nat'l Geographic. The fact that it can be found so readily is why I didn't rate it higher. Good work though.

Stunning, very evocative of safari memories since these magnificent creatures really do sleep so much of the time don't they? Beautifully composed, good light, nice level of detail in cat and branch. Just lovely.
