Lions - Masai Mara (Doogs)

Post  Doogs on Mon Sep 26, 2011 9:28 pm

We were fortunate to come across a number of different Lions when we were away from various prides, Ridge Pride, Base Pride and the Marsh Pride. We saw a few 'courting couples' including one of Notch's sons and a lucky lady. The rest of Notch's sons were lying sleeping nearby but we didn't get any decent photos of them as they were flat out !!!

Oh Doogs those are Blooming Lovely Very Happy you must be so delighted with those, they are amazing. The courting couple is very tender and yes Notch's son is just so handsome.......just like his dad. Loving the cub suckling, I think thats a first on here from anyones visits to the Mara. Had to Very Happy with the cats relaxing, they look just like their domestic friends having a nap.
Those have given me a huge smile this evening

Oh WOW, that is delightful Doogs, she is so relaxed about it all, infact she is like " i'm not having my sleep disturbed for anything", I reckon she is an experienced mum don't you. She is also very beautiful isn't she and the cubs are very cute.
That is one of my favourite photo's Doogs I love you Thanks so much for that little extra one Hugs
