I did not see anything about not using this outside of DA, so I used it on flickr, giving you credit of course.

I appreciate that you gave me credit and shared a link to the piece you made.

You should be aware that people do not have to explicitly state that their images are off limits for use as stock. That's implied by the copyright symbol beneath each image.

If I wanted this image to be used as stock, I would have submitted it to the Stock category on dA and I would have made a statement granting people permission to use it.

In the future, if you would like to use one of my images, please ask first.

Please forgive me! I overlooked the copyright mark, which appears very faint on my screen. I will remove the image from my flickr stream if you wish, and I will certainly ask in the future. I try to respect artists' rights at all times.

It's okay, you don't need to remove it from your photostream on Flickr.

Just for future reference, I do have a stock account that is devoted to my skull collection, but I don't know if you'd be interested in that. All the images (with the exception of my devIDs) there are free for non-commercial use and you don't need to worry about asking for permission: ~rgstock777

This is one of my most favorite photos I've ever found on DA. The lions at my zoo have been running around a lot but its so shaded in their enclosure I can't get anything that looks even close to as awesome as this.

It's not as big as it looks, but it's pretty good sized. All the green in the background is another enclosure. I'm sure they'd love to have all that land to themselves, though!

It's a really terrific place to go and experience--I highly recommend it!

Gorgeous shot - a stunning representation of such a majestic, powerful cat. The crispness of the lion contrasted with the attractively blurred background makes for a brilliant photograph!

Hi there, and thanks. Since this isn't a stock account, I don't feel comfortable with that. Sorry!

I'll tell you what, though... When I get some free time in the next few days, I can go through my photo archives and upload some lion photos to my stock account if you're interested. This photo won't be included, but there will be some other interesting stuff that you might like. I'll note you with a link when it's ready. Does that sound like a good compromise?

I think it makes him look SOOOOO cute, but I'm just wondering, why is his hair so short?? The lion at our zoo has a short mane, but its not THAT short. That's the shortest I've ever seen a lions mane.
