[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lions do not mate at any specific time of year, and the females are polyestrous. Like other cats, the male lion's penis has spines which point backwards. Upon withdrawal of the penis, the spines rake the walls of the female's vagina, which may cause ovulation. Furthermore, cats are superfecund; that is, a female may mate with more than one male when she is in heat, meaning different cubs in a litter may have different fathers. During a mating bout, which could last several days, the couple frequently copulate twenty to forty times a day and are likely to forgo hunting. In captivity, lions reproduce very well.

Hi Annick

She looks in deep thought. Love the close details you show here. A very nice moment captured. Thank you! :-)

Hi Annik,
Nice shot of the Lion in their usual resting mode. I think it would stand a touch more sharpening to bring out the hair detail.
