Good morning from a cold but sunny Swellendam Colleen !! I really do love your 'bush 'photos as you have captured the dry winter bushveld look so well. This is such a little beauty and a stunning image !

Hermanus's comment made me smile - I don't know why Wink

This is a very good picture, Colleen.
Lions have that colour coat to blend in with their surroundings so to get a clearly differentiated shot like that is remarkable.

Let's hope the answer to the question isn't "Behind you".
