Lions at Night

During my last trip to South Africa, I was lucky enough to watch lions at night not just once, but on four separate occasions.  I have wanted to post these photos for a while; originally I held off as I printed two of them as a gift, and didn’t want to run risk that they would be seen on screen before the prints showed up in person (they looked AMAZING, if I do say so myself).  I’ve finally had the chance to work through all the photos I had hoped to edit. A few of them are also on my Smugmug site, links are provided for anyone interested.

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful evening.

A lioness tries to catch 40 winks, but the male lion nearby definitely had other things on his mind! (More on that in another post!) Chitwa Chitwa, May 2015
