Addo Trip #3 - Getting back to the lions

This is the young male who waited at the water hole the day before, for the hartebeest to arrive. This morning he was enjoying basking in the early morning sun.


After looking for the lions for four years, it was nice to get up close and personal - well not too close and personal.

Lions are such beautiful, majestic animals! Like you, I'd love to be able to be up close and personal, just not too much!! I love his eyes and he looks so peaceful. Must have a full stomach!! Thanks as always for sharing your wonderful photos, Max!

I am fascinated by the shadows on his rump and tail! Just unexpected, I guess...
