Say what you will, but there is certainly a reason why the Lion is known as the king of the jungle. As I watched these three lions in awe, I was simply too enamored to realize just what was taking place. It was only thereafter, as my husband and daughter sat next to me, giggling, did the situation become clear.
Let us just say the king was on his throne, so to speak.
Here I was, believing I had captured the expression of a wise beast. Holding centuries of knowledge. An amazing shot! I mean he was looking RIGHT AT ME….or so it seemed.
The guide remarked she would try to take us to a location where we could get a better view. As she did, I was clueless as to why some of the safari members were giggling like shy school girls.
As we rounded the bed I was feverously taking photographs…all the while absolutely oblivious.
Now, considering what I shall mention later, I really should have know.
I am sure by now this image makes it painfully obvious. The poor lion. I mean, an audience as he relieves himself!
Here I thought I was actually capturing a beautiful moment, not a bowel movement.
The kicker is this, it would seem every time we (specifically me) are near an animal, no matter the species, they have to relieve themselves. Whether it be a zoo, a park, on safari, or even just walking in our own neighborhood. My husband is all too quick to point the animals out, in the off chance I somehow manage to miss this. I probably should have never told him about the elephant ride I took as a child. Yes, the elephant decided to go then too.
Shortly after these images were taken we visited a petting zoo…..
I will leave this here.
