Orngatung - brave

Orngatung - brave - The Big Five
Orngatung, meaning brave, is the Maasai name for the Lion (Panthera leo). Lions spend large amounts of their time inactive or asleep. This can be as much as 18 hours a day which makes it tricky to photograph them. Often, I found them asleep on the edge of the bush surrounded by grasses and shrubs. However, on this particular evening it was raining and the relatively cool and damp conditions encouraged the lions to be more active and visible. This particular male was in the process of courtship which was keeping him more alert and attentive than usual.
