This guy is fondly called, "Booker T" one of the two resident males at Kwando, Lebala (unfortunately, this guy has not been seen for several months - only his brother King Booker has been seen). I just learnt today that Booker T is a famous wrestler in the USA's WWE league.

Linyanti Marsh: I like to watch and photograph lions playing, but when they take to water, I can never thank them enough

post-48637-0-55833700-1415912628_thumb.jpgThat morning in Okaukueyo Camp in Etosha (Namibia) we knew that Lions had been spotted at the Oliphants Bad waterhole. We went to the gates in good time before they opened. After a "race" to the waterhole we first saw some Lionesses playing around and the three males in absolute perfect condition. The most beautiful male Lions we had ever seen! We were lucky because after 15 min the Lions wandered away and we could´t follow them.

Just prep'ing a few photo's for my overdue Mana Pools trip report and wanted to see whether or not this border style worked, so a slightly cheeky post, but they are lions!

@@Whyone? My 2 cents worth.

 

A border of that size is OK, especially if you want to put some text in the border but i think you could go with a much narrower border of just a few pixels (say 5 pixels max) that will suffice.

@@Geoff, many thanks for your comments - much appreciated, and I think you are correct, a narrower border looks better. I have also realised that the border is cropping the image - top of dead tree to right of the picture, so I need to fix that as well.

This young lion came down to drink at Kanga Pan (Mana Pools NP) just after sunset.

This lioness was walking along the edge of a seasonal water pan hence the fairly uniform background. This was taken while I was leading a photography trip at Tubu Tree Camp, Okavango Delta.
