This frisky kitten was worried about his throat and tongue after eating some hamburguers. Yes, he confused the sweet ketchup sauce with the HOT sauce. So, he told me : "Dave, coud you take a picture of me? I would like to see the color of my tongue after this terrible mistake."

Dave, this one is a real beauty. The colour and shape of the tongue are interesting. More interesting is the background anecdote. So you cast your spell not only on us, but also the animal kingdom. Compliments to Dave, the leonine photographer.

David, I think he is trying to tell us to watch out for that tongue, for the next word could spell blessing or catastrophe.The tongue is small yet can be a dangerous weapon.The tongue is somewhat of a double-edged sword. The same tongue that is used to compliment people is also the same tongue that is used to gossip, lie, and slander.The tongue is an instrument that can do a world of good, yet can damage one's reputation and credibility.Watching our tongue can be much harder to actually do than not. Excellent capture dear David.

Hi David.

Excellent timing exposure and details. He definitely does not neet the services of a laryngologist judging by his tongue..:-). Warm regards Dimitris.

Thanks to all of you for your kind comments!

Spencer, I agree totally with you about how the human being can use his tongue. In the human being any object or any part of his body, can be potentially dangerous. I admire to the animals by their conduct, often superior to the majority of human beings. In the present time, thanks to the TV, the net and other medias, we can see thousands of videos with admirable and incredible cases, about the conduct of different animals. I bet that most of you have seen the amazing video of a leopard (Lagadema) taking care of a baby baboon after killing his mom. This case is just one among thousands that we don't see. I love and admire the animal kingdom.

"I bet that most of you have seen the amazing video of a leopard (Lagadema) taking care of a baby baboon after killing his mom."

Sounds like the US government, except we can forgive the lion because he is an animal, and does what comes naturally, while Uncle Sam is,..., oh wait a minute.

BTW, lovely composition. You caught the lion being a lion, a lazy beast who does just enough work to get his sustenance.

Great photo! Don't know which puts more of a smile on my face....the obvious yawn from the mouth and tongue, or the relaxed way the front paws are crossed!!

Well-timed capture of a gaping yawn at its widest point. Of a lioness, no less.

I've always wanted to get something like this but have yet to do it. Heh.
