With the scattered remains of his last meal spread around him, a very satiated male lion (Leo pantera) relaxes in the underbrush waiting for the heat of the day to pass.

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. Please visit us at
