p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The King of Beast - it is a hard life in the Serengeti


We saw over 100+ lions while we zig zaged over the Serengeti - but this guy was by far the most handsome - we nick named him "Elvis" and took a lot of shots - we noticed that he had a fresh puncture wound on his right flank area - but when I looked closer at his face you could see the ware and tare of life on the plains - one of his lower canine was missing his lip split and several of his small teeth were gone too - but his presence in the area was well respected as nobody came close to his area - hope you enjoy

see the puncture by his stomach


check out his mouth


everybody keeps their distance


he is very handsome in Black & White too

Very interesting Marcy....I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder....I think this guy has seen better days and losing canines and the worn down front teeth really shows what this guy has been through. I can only imagine the wars he's been through...those scars tell a many a story. Superb images...I really like your black and white conversion accompanying the color shots. Keep 'em coming!

I love the entire set, and what a story of life the photos tell about this guy!

On the last one......I would be tempted to tone it slightly - selenium maybe, or perhaps a slight bit of sepia, then print it really large with a title in an old style font giving the location. Framed and hung it would be a perfect wall centerpiece of your talent, a time rapidly passing from Africa today, AND of a time long gone from the Africa of the past. I say this because to me the composition is just perfect.

thanks for posting.....

Great pics and story of this fine looking specimen Marcy at least from afar but the close ups tell a different story and his days may have been numbered.

Beautiful set Marcy

they say that if we want to photograph beautiful lions etc we're better off going to a zoo as the ones in the wild live a difficult & hard life. This guy sure looks like he has.

Great shots! It's true that whenever his prey become old and/or wounded, life usually ends very quick. Not so for the top of the food chain! They usually die slowly often from hunger.
