To see such a large pride male this high up was a rare treat, a pity this female didn't treat him! :lol:  Juliet just kept on snoozing!

Brilliant sighting, Marc.  I've seen the females and younger males quite high up in trees, but never a mature, maned male like this one.  I must say she looks a lot more relaxed and chilled about their lofty perch than he does. :D

What a wonderful shot!

What a fabulous image Marc. pure Africa. Love the title and wonder how the auditions for those roles went. (Feisty probably and hotly contended)...
Make your life spectacular!

What a treat! Wonderful sighting and story! As Carol mentions, he does look rather uncomfortable.

Great image of such usual behavior. I hope neither one decided to finish the play the way Shakespeare wrote it.
