Thanks Safariman, another great selection of lions from the different prides. I particularly like the young male from the Cheli pride, he's going to be magnificent when he is older.

They all look well fed and fit which is lovely to see.

Thanks for sharing.

I Agree Lai he does look as though he's going to be a really handsome male when he gets older. I also love the lighting on Offbeat Pride female in the early morning sun, and the After dinner drink Chell pride female. It looks like the Off beat pride Cub is trying to copy the female above
Thanks again for sharing your photos Safariman, its cheered me up, it's made a nice change from looking at all the snow we have outside
