The local pride male lion (Panthera leo) advertises his dominance over the pride territory by leaving his unique telltale scent on a bush. Having just urinated on the bush, he reinforces that pungent sample of his personal cologne by rubbing his body over the branches and leaving further proof of his claim, while also warning off all potential threats.

Timbavati reserve, South Africa

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.
