Lion Field Sketch by Alison Nicholls ©2013

Here is a very simple field sketch I created in Kruger National Park, South Africa, last September. This male lion was mating and as a result was following every move of the lioness he was with. But he had an injured front paw and seemed torn between mating and resting his leg. He looked exhausted, but every time the lioness got up and moved, he followed. I have a feeling that when they finished mating, he was planning on a very long sleep to rest his injured paw!

Until next time…
