Love in the Serengeti for Valentines Day

One day while exploring the Serengeti in Tanzania we encountered a pair of courting lions. They wandered away from the pride together in search of privacy and we couldn’t resist seeing how their ‘date’ would turn out. The photos tell the story.

The date starts with a friendly greeting and signs of mutual attraction

So off the pair goes for some time alone

But it's not long before the mood changes

And the irritable exchange accelerates

Mating ensues despite the discord

Indifference sets in

But the day is saved by a beautiful sunset

Happy Valentines Day wherever you are

 
Where would you like to spend Valentines Day?  I’d like to be sitting under that tree.  Share the journey with me.
