The Lion's Legacy
King of the savannah, apex predator, powerful, threatening, majestic, magnificent, noble. It is the Lion’s legacy to be labelled with such monumental adjectives.
A male lion in his prime is perhaps one of the most impressive creatures in the animal kingdom. Any encounter leaves me feeling completely insignificant, weak and awestruck. Weighing up to 180kg and able to take down a fully grown buffalo, I always come away from encounters like this truly thankful that I'm inside a safari vehicle.
This magnificent lion is known as Bob Junior and at six years old, he is at the peak of his sexual maturity. Leading a coalition with one other male, Bob Junior lives in the eastern Serengeti with his large, successful pride.
This encounter happened during my first drive in a photographic vehicle. The sides were down, and I was lying on my stomach in the back of the vehicle with nothing between me and this huge force of nature. Bob Junior maintained eye contact with our vehicle and I quietly clicked away, watching him bask in the early morning rays.
