I have taken photos of this beautiful animal before, but I find it an irresistable subject because of the gorgeous, unique mane. This particular shot has (to me) a delicate sensitivity, a look into the character of the animal. Yet another example here of the shockingly good bokeh of this small aperture zoom lens.
