Old Scar Face

A cross and drooling lion (Panthera leo) focused on the photographer. Old scar face here was not very happy with the presence of paparazzi, taking images of his girls on his turf. Posed in shade with dappled sunlight during the late part of the afternoon this was the culmination of a long walk looking for the pride. He made a noisy appearance and proceeded to stare us out… he is the man in charge of the ‘Spice Girls’ in Mana Pools National Park.

    1. David… thanks… hopefully you are still on for the next trip… I wouldn’t miss it for anything…

  1. Great pic, just as well that you are fit, lean and not as good looking as his Spice Girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, otherwise that drooling could have turned into affirmative action.
    You certainly are a Master of the camera.
