Photographer's Note

These are the same lions I posted yesterday, now in the act of mating.

The male lion seemed to very aggressive during this, biting the lioness in the neck and growling a lot. However, in the end it seemed to be more show than anything else, because the lioness was completely unscathed afterwards... :-)

The mating process is quite short, and afterwards they lay down again, next to each other, to rest for the next session. This process of mating and resting can go on for a couple of hours.

Like I said yesterday, I struggled with the light here, because the lions were in a shadow and the background was light. I hope it came out OK.
