His Majesty

Dr Shanel Cameron , September 2013

After an exhausting two days of mating with a pride of females, this magnificent male lion was found in the evening resting in a riverbed in South Africa. We waited for what seemed like hours for him to stir, and fortunately for us he awoke just when another vehicle was able to provide some backlighting with their spotlight. After rising and walking a few metres he promptly flopped back down again, no doubt welcoming the fact that the females were still sleeping.
