The lover. The fighter.
"A number of encounters with a pair of mating lions at Kruger National Park presented never-fail exhilaration and a chance to observe this power couple over the course of a few days. Captured on my iPhone through the Swarovski spotting scope in soft afternoon light, the focus on the grass created this almost impressionistic look to the picture. Elegant in his recline, his battered face told a story of the scars incumbent in dominion."
