Pride, Not Hubris

Kumar the Asian Lion, Dublin Zoo

At 9 years old, and weighing in at almost 150kg, Kumar is one big cat (at least, for an Asian Lion - the African Lions can weigh well in excess of 200kg!).

I'm accepting an invitation from +Liz C to the #fivedaynaturechallenge (Thanks, Liz! I know I took my time, but better late than never, eh? ;).

I'd like to invite +Joan Munford to take up the challenge (and I'm sure it'll be second nature, no pun intended. OK, maybe that was a little bit intentional).

There was an ugly background behind this magnificent beast (a green metal fence), but that's nothing that LR for Android, Snapseed and Photo Editor couldn't cure.

I had to avoid the straight shot of this statue, +Joan Munford - it's become a bit of a photographic cliché in Dublin. I hoped the 'stars' might give it a bit of a twist.
Thanks for your kind words!

Yeah, the miserable wagon. The other statue was nicer, I suppose. Well, mostly armless. +Leonie H​

Yes, and isn't that tragic? Still, I feel incredibly lucky to have these guys living just down the road from me +Liz C

Olympus users get the fast ultra wide-angle, pro-quality lens that was announced last month. Here's a good review on cameralabs.
There's such a great range of lenses available in the m43 format these days that I'm starting to wonder if I'll persevere with APS-C, move up to full frame, or move "down" to this format. 
Looking for an Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 review? Find out if this Pro lens is the best ultra-wide zoom for Micro Four Thirds!

Story
Tagline
Amateur Photographer. Professional Pretengineer. Opportunistically milking Google+ for all it's worth.
Introduction
Who says software engineers are boring? Everyone? Oh.
When I'm not trying to figure out why software isn't doing what it should, I like to shoot stuff... With my Pentax (or whatever comes to hand).
I also like to make sweet noise with my six-string. Oh mercy!
At least I don't write poetry, so it's not all bad ;)

Equipment
Camera: Pentax K-r, SG2, Zenit 12XP (the "Russian Tank") Konica-Minolta Z3, Canon A495
Lenses (K mount): Pentax 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit, Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6, Pentax 35mm f/2.4, Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7
M42: Helios 44-2 58mm f/2, Helios 44M-4 58mm f/2, Jupiter-11a 135mm f/4
Bragging rights
Smarter than my phone (when it's not connected to the internets). I also know all about the deepest darkest dirty secrets of the JVM (and so I should, since I spend all day going through its garbage ;)
