52 Weeks of Life Seen Through My Eyes

Ida's Photo Theme Challenge

Week 23 #33. Old Timer


Driving through a game park in South Africa, we excitedly watched an old white lion stroll through the tall grasses attempting to skirt the vehicles parked on the rutted red-earth road. He walked slowly, stopping once in a while, constantly on the alert, seeming at times to be agitated by human presence. At one point he lifted his massive maned head to emit a mournful roar before lowering it and selecting a path that led away through the brush. He was clearly an old timer, but his powerful, scarred body still retained his majestic strength.
