Sacred Valley Pride
The pride was protected by two males in this territory.
In this painting I wanted to feature 'Garlic' the darker haired male, with two of his favourite lionesses and their cubs relaxing, while the Thornicroft's giraffe warily kept their distance.
It is always thrilling to find lion, but when there are cubs involved it makes the encounter extra special and best explains why lions are truly social cats.
