Meet Tamblyn Williams, Lion Tamer

Photo: Shlomi Nissim/Fine Art Photography

In this striking photograph by Shlomi Nissim of Fine Art Photography (more great photos there, btw), Australian lion tamer Tambly Williams look just like a modern day Jane Porter (from Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan of the Apes).

From The Telegraph:

Tamblyn Williams carries six-month-old lion cub Jagger on her shoulders. Jagger arrived at Seaview Lion Park in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, from a different lion park where he was part of a breeding programme. But he was abandoned just days after birth and was taken in by Tamblyn who had just started as a volunteer at the park after moving to South Africa from Sydney, Australia, to study wildlife. She says: "I spent every day feeding him, going for walks, playing with him and just making sure he was in good health. Now he's a few months older he's a bit too heavy for me to carry - but we're still close."
