Watched this couple for quite a while.  

Reason for showing this is mainly that despite the Lioness head moving back, this image clearly shows her ear locked.  Almost as if, despite the many distractions, there are the usual failsafe sensors in action...

Please feel free to click on the image.  Thanks
Make your life spectacular!

Classic behaviour while they're still in that oestrus 'bubble' of interaction. A sweet moment and nicely captured, Dave.

Great timing to capture the action with the males tongue out, Dave. Love the expression on her face. Excellent interaction!

So sweet. I see cat behavior that seems universal. Love her expression. Amazing you got that tongue!

A tender moment well depicted, your techs would be very different today I trust Dave, with the lioness subject movement at only 1/80s.
