I watched three lionesses involved in a kill one morning. After feeding, the lionesses strolled off to drink when I noticed this lady limping. She showed battle scars and a broken canine. I watched the two leading lionesses wait for her every so often while she caught up. She rested for a while and I captured this. This is life in wild Africa, but it reflects so well on our lives. The grunge for a bit of mood.

Must be difficult tearing off a meal with one canine. She's battle scarred alright. Great mood here...

The grunge postwork enhances the feeling of being battered and scarred. Good use of that technique! Your accompanying information is quite interesting. I thought you said lions were ... oh, never mind. :P

Great vignetting in this image and a stellar portrait that looks virtually grunged, Piet. I suppose with all those scars the lioness doen't need grunging.
