Regal

“There’s a nobility in his eye, a regal serenity about him. Does he not personify all that men try to be and never can be? “~ M Morpurgo

Regal Lion

The quote above was referring to a horse but a lion also fits the bill.  Lazurus is the animal I spend the most time watching and shooting when I go to this animal park.  He was one of a litter of four; his sibling were stillborn and Lazurus had to be given mouth to mouth resuscitation for a full 30 minutes by the park owners in order to have just a chance at survival. And survive, he did.  He’s a gorgeous animal, isn’t he? It is an honor to be in his presence and see him bask in the sun and hear his roar.  “Regal” does not even do him justice!
