Wow! Great shot. I hope you don't mind, but I couldn't resist downloading it. I have to show the entire family. Since our name is King, we are partial to the King of Beasts.

Happy trails.

I agree with Swubird, that's a terrific shot. It would make a great poster.

He's a beauty!!
Have you heard 'Lucas the Lazy Lion' by Ed Jordan on the Beautiful Creatures CD (for kiddies!) - that's now 'singing' in my head!!

I haven't been down to the Eastern Cape via your blog for a while and enjoyed this magnificent fellow as well as the most recent shots taken at Addo. I must say Leo's mane looks as if he has just had a blow dry.
