I Am by MikeShawPhotography I Am by MikeShawPhotography
I Am

I am the one you fear
When respect is all that is needed
I am predator
Turned prey to mankind
Were I once was many
I am now few
I am majestic
But only a trophy to a man with a gun.

This is Iblis one of three Asiatic lions at Chester Zoo UK, there are only about 350 remaining in the wild, they differ from African lions and are like so many creatures on our planet now endangered. I often wonder what we shall be judged on by future generations?
