While on safari in the bush in South Africa we came upon this large male lion, the grandpa of the private game reserve, with his notorious jet-black mane. He made himself comfortable in the road, making the occasional call to his female. After about 20 minutes of watching him gaze into the distance, dozing off in the heat of the day, we started the truck to leave. As we drove away, he gave me this alert look with his dramatic black mane ever so quaffed, ready for his close-up. Photo and caption by Kathryn Sweeney
