A Talented Photographer Managed To Immortalize A White Lion In All Its Glory

It was also because of this cultural background that when British photographer Simon Needham caught the eye of the lion Moya at the Glen Garriff Conservation shrine , he was literally captivated, to the point of then devoting his energies to portraying its greatness. . The resulting photos, which have become famous all over the world, are a unique spectacle that is not just for animal lovers.
