A male lion (Panthera leo) in the prime of his life and power surveys the vast open floodplains surrounding Kwetsani camp in the Okavango Delta. Large portions of the delta dry out as the annual influx of flood waters recede, leaving behind areas of rich grazing for the vast herds of herbivores. Where there’s good grazing there’s got to be herbivores. Where there’s herbivores, there’s got to be the ever attendant lions!

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.
