Mating Season

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Mikyung Kim

My family and I watched the resting lion couple, waiting for something to happen. Finally the male stood up, walked over to the female and climbed on top. We quickly realised they were mating. I'm don't know whether lions actually feel passion when they mate, but perhaps these lions did.

Location: Masai Mara, Kenya
