I am back on safer soil with animal captures after the grunge fun. Thanks goodness you say! :P
A pair of mating lions up close. The male is a gorgeous white lion, while the female is of normal coloring. Look close, she is still covered in blood from her last meal and the male is not taking any chances. Mating lionesses are aggressive towards the male in between mating and would attack for no apparent reason. Sounds familiar in human behavior? Hehe. On this particular day we had been lulled into believing it's quite safe but the next moment the female charged at us and one of the Renderosity photographers with me, almost peed her pants. It was the first time in her life she experienced the sheer volume of a growling lion. She was appalled by the strong odor emanating from her gaping mouth, I had my doubts as to the origin though. I am being silly, I know...
