A week ago this morning we came across my favourite Lion "Scarface", he was the miserable male I showed you a few weeks ago that was thrown out of the pride by the females (the same pride from day before that are soon to do the same to the next young male). Well you all said you hoped he found a mate.....this he has done, a handsome guy with a red mane) he has also found a lady love....
....he still has his bad hairstyle, but can still pull the ladies....him and his friend apparently have both had their eye on this same lady and have had a few nasty fights trying to determine a winner (you can see a wound around his left eye)....well "Scarface" won...... sadly his friend had to sit on the sidelines and watch....as they say...three is a crowd....
V1....he has her in view....squinting in the morning sun
V2....the lady has spotted him
V3 ...the friend looking on...a handsome red head
V4....the hunt....she is off to find a suitable spot
V56..another vehicle arrived and pulled in front of us...lucky the lion had his mind elsewhere as the look he gave the Tracker was....if I wasnt so busy I would eat you....cant you see I am busy, get out of my way (you get some idiot Rangers)
V9...The happy couple... You will see hV9....His friend...so handsome
V10....Do I look chuffed
More tomorrow.....( sorry for the big upload, but its the story unfolding....very difficult to photograph as you never know what the animals are going to do next)
Have a nice day....my life seems to be taken over by three visits to the hospital everyday and worrying about Rob...
