It’s Valentine’s day so my post for today had to be about love … this is a lioness’s idea of how to seduce this handsome hunk of a lion. Lion flirting is pretty straightforward – the picture says it all and I’m not going to go into verbal detail as it would inevitably sound like one of those mummy-porn books! All the flirting going on did not develop into anything further though – at least while I was there. But my guess is that it was only a matter of time! The male was clearly enjoying all the attention – and the view. This photo was taken in the Maasai Mara in September 2013 – one of the many memorable moments I have captured during my short safari there. Can’t wait to go back there!
