Just a quick deviation from the lions and I hope you find the masked weaver (Ploceus velatus) or Maskenweber in German very colorful. The male builds the nest and entices the females to join him. She will inspect the nest and either rip it apart or just leave if she does not like the new home. The male is the one hanging underneath. I am glad I am not a masked weaver, LOL!
This photo is also dedicated to a close friend Marie who is going through a tough time.
I plan one or two photos with close up detail of a lion.
Thank you for views and comments on The young ones

Oh my...what beautiful birds! And the poor males, LOL! If that were the case in the human population there would be a lot of demolished homes--though we do have a tendency to "spruce things up" a bit, don't we? So sad to say that here in this part of the States our birds are mostly black and brown. Now you've got me thinking of looking for that illusive cardinal......
