I can not phrase what it is about this photograph that I feel is lacking.  I know it is not your skill with animals because your gallery has some wonderful animal photos especially the "Baboons", "Croc Tail", "Kennedy", and "Graham".  The picture seems lifeless and I am not sure what to do about it.

He looks like he has been stuffed.

It is becauset the head is turned away so that the eyes are not showing.  Eyes bring a mammal to life...

Good photo. It conveys a bit of the majestic nature of this animal. He is completely at ease, because he knows he is king.

If pushed to find something to improve I would tone down the light leaves/stalks above his mane. They attract my eye too much, but that could be just me being picky.
