Good morning....
Thanks for your vote and comments and to JamesMoorephotography for his UA, much appreciated...
This was taken after the lionesses feeding frenzy on the warthog kill. She is the sister of Scarface. Her face is still mucky with innards.
Thank you for all your well wishes for Rob. Its been 12 days since is hip replacement and he is in a Rehab centre until Monday. There has been a few niggles but he is getting stronger everyday.
Apologies if I only vote and not comment, time is short these days
Have a nice day

Beautiful eye contact with the sis. Looks like she is very very ,close in spite of the 300mm or actually 450mm focal length .But she has just eaten, so she might not be very hungry ,i guess. --- A very good closeup , Colleen. --- Jukka.

Talking of lunch the gentleman adventurer Simon Fletcher has yet to return from his latest travels, perhaps he's ended up as lunch for a pride of lions!Tongue A beautiful portrait of this magnificent animal Colleen, excellent eye contact in this one
