Ours won't be as fierce this time, but March supposedly comes in like one of these
Normally, though, it would have two eyes -- but, hey, you go into March with the lion you've got. In this case, it's the lion I photographed last year in the Conservation Carousel, Henry Vilas Zoo, Madison Wisconsin. Because of the camera angle, the other eye is hiding behind the nose. Sorry about that. In any event, looks as if our March lion in Madison took temperament lessons from the groundhog. It's supposed to be a nice day.
Lions are not the only animal metaphor used in regard to March. There's also the salt marsh harvest mouse.
