Close up of dominant lioness in tsavo east

One of my all time favorite lion prides that i have the pleasure of monitoring in Tsavo East National Park is the Aruba Pride of Lions. It is currently the largest and also the most entertaining group of big cats around simply because there are alot of cubs and sub-adults.

The dominant female pictured above, is an excellent matriarch to the pride. Keeping all the members well fed and protected, her exceptional hunting skills will hopefully be passed down to all the youngsters.

In the above photo, she was literally three meters away from the vehicle and comfortably resting in the open by the road side. She would occasionally take a peek up and stare for about ten seconds just to keep an eye on what the cubs were doing. After noticing this little habit, i waited for the next opportunity when she lifted her head and managed to get a nice close up of her beautiful aging features. I enjoyed capturing the details of the fur, whiskers, the busy flies cleaning some meal stains and her nose.
