The day had been rainy and cool and this lion (Panthera leo ) was not doing very well at hiding his true feelings about being wet and miserable. The pride had recently been unsuccessful at hunting in the open and had just made a dash to find some meager shelter under the poorly vegetated bush.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings.
