Umh...I cannot see the path, Louis. Why don't you lead the way, mate!
Louis: Only when you sort of walk right next to me, Ray
I'd let them have their way! Lovely photo of lounging lions!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth. They are so used to having it their way.

Who wants to go on walking when you get a photo opportunity like this, Louis?
Louis: With a long lens, you can spend some time here, Lisl. Especially if there is a good tree from which you can take the pics.
One could be easily deceived, Louis. They look like big pussy cats.
Louis: They do, but I will never be deceived Ginnie.

erg vredezaaam gezin -één leuw met zijn vier echtgenoten?
Louis: Dit klopt 1 + 4. Later ontdekte ik noch 4 welpen achter een grote rotsblok.
looks more like their living room and their couch, Louis. the fact that you posted this image demonstrates that you did not get into an altercation with them about the path tongue
Louis: Logical reasoning says I didn't flirt too hard with the danger, Ayush smile
I would detour round i think
Louis: Very wise, Bill
Women get together in the lion world too, it seems. This is amazing and something I would only dream of seeing.
Louis: The male is the one to the left with some grasses in front of its head. But, it is not strange to find a pride with no male. The males sometimes take leave for up to a week at a time. But then go home for some home cooking, as the females are great hunters.

Whoa - damn right. No way would I be walking through there! Time to turn back?
Louis: Definitely. Take a few pics as they are lazy at the time, but don't push your luck.
Ha, and we worry about cows on the path,good luck Louis,remember,you only have to be faster than one other person...smile
Louis: Yes, that is why guys take mothers in law along on bush hikes. They are generally slower than the sons in law.
Yep......this is where one casually walks backwards, defying the compulsion to run.....did your lens, give you enough of a lead? grin
Louis: I had the big lens on and at full stretch, so was quite safe, especially they seemed to have had their fill for the moment.
About walking backwards. We know that when you suddenly meet a lion in the bush, you first take a step to the left and then casually walk backwards. Not necessary to step in your own goo.
Even though they look to be relaxed and chilling out, Louis, I would think twice about asking them to move. Marvelous capture!
Louis: Better safe than sorry, so you are right. And they are awfully fast. Thanks Beverly.

You can lead the way Louis, I am very close behind you....
Maybe you can move a little to the left, so that I can takes some pictures.
WOW, this is big family.... great shot here.
Louis: Good of you Astrid, not to let the photo opportunity pass you by. Thanks.
The lion seems exhausted with his harem at his feet...Great capture Louis!
Louis: Maybe they feed him too much smile Thank you richard
Focal length 400m but how far away from these guys are you Louis?
Louis: I also cropped the picture, so I am even further than appearing. I would say it was about 200 metres
