A painful reminder for mum.

The little one wanted a drink as well. It got it a few minutes later.

Have a good week!

Little Lions

LITTLE LIONS are one of my favorite photography subjects. These two did a synchronized walk for my photo shoot 😊

WHAT A WEEKEND

Just relaxing before the new week starts!

THAT IS NOT THE WAY YOU HOLD ON TO A LADY!

After a few days of mating the Lion female had enough and wanted to go off hunting. But here mate tried to hold on 😊

AT NIGHT

Has it happened to you that you drive down the road at night and that you run into some cats?

Well, our cats ‘own’ the road at night and we have to follow them patiently. No overtaking! 😊

A SMALL MEAL

Because this kill was very small the more dominant of the female Lions did not allow cubs on the kill other than her own.

When they tried to sneak in they got a bit of a hiding.

And it got a bit noisy. What a sighting at Thanda Safari!

FOLLOWING THE LADY

Once male Lions find a female in estrous they are very persistent. And even after they mated for a few days our two males were trailing the lady for quite a while!

Heavy Breathing!

Heavy breathers 😊 Thanda Safari’s male Lions (coalition) were strolling past the Green Mamba this afternoon, breathing rather heavily. The ultra-wide-angle lens of my new iPhone Pro Max captures the scene very nicely 🦁
