Have you ever seen a mane like this!! by 

A large big male lion( Panthera leo ) with an incredible two tone mane near ulusaba,South Africa in the late evening light.I believe he is one of the Mapogos taken in 2009,probably he is Makulu .

I am an amateur photographer and mostly photograph wildlife and have a special love for WILD big cats and birds.I am self taught and have never attended a course in photography.I exclusively photograph animals in the WILD which is always challenging! I use only canon equipment and now have 7d , t3i,and power shot 40 sx hs camera`s and use canon 28-135 mm,70-200mm f 2.8 ,100-400mm f 5.6,and 500mm f/4 lenses.

    He looks so very sad, and old! This is such a reallly wonderful capture of him. He is so beautiful I would name him Kono!

  • Thanks, he is indeed old and bears the scars of survival ,but he was just tired and was being a good dad and walking with his 2 adolescent children,i have another full length one of him standing up showing his size and scars more prominently ,will put it up in a few days,just found them from 3 years ago. I think he is one of the Mapogo coalition so someoene has already named him,but Kono is good for me :)
