Good morning, ekoppen.

What a great way to start the day!

Clever buffs. They held their nerve and didn't make anything easy for the lions.

Thanks for sharing.

Those lionesses are huge and look pretty healthy.

They must be getting plenty to eat.

Great photographs by the way.

Thanks missings.a.! :thumbs_up:

They were pretty impressive, There were 7 of them in total and unfortunately it was also sad to see one of the lionesses was extremely sick with what appeared to be Bovine TB :(

Here she is...
