This male lion was obviously in siesta mood as he only lifted his head to look at us, look around, then returned to sleeping! Hope you've all enjoyed the sun of today! Thank you for your comments.

Ah! Lovely image, Maggie! How perfect is his camouflage! I love the sunlight on his mane - a very handsome boy indeed!

I'm simply envious: not just because you captured such a lovely image but that you had the opportunity to do so in Africa.

Great capture. (Capture of his image not the beast I hope!) Glad to see you were using a long lens. Interesting to see a result like this from a 'mini' camera, I've just bought similar and enjoying not getting neck/back ache.
