Wild Africa - The Groom

By Gezina  
Thank you for c'c on the It's another ...Vulture upload - much appreciated.
In fear of boring you with in flight captures a quick flick back to a safari photo taken in May this year. We've only seen one pair of Lions this time round and it was a honeymoon couple - the only shot I got of the femeale has got a 4x4 car in the b/g - she had her eyes fixed on an Impala comming down their way and this beautiful male in the prime of his live had his eyes fixed on her ..... Ina PS she was only one long stide away from me and he was comming down the road - I had to lean out of the window to get some shots of him approaching very conscious of her just a lion's breath away.....
