Photo Of The Month: David Pusey

David Pusey from South Africa

We spent a few hours with this young male lion, close to our camp, one afternoon. When he first arrived at our camp he was a little curious about us, but then he totally relaxed and rested in the soft sand, after a very hot summers day in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

It is not too often I get the opportunity of such a low angle with a big cat and, due to his very relaxed nature, I managed to position myself to capture the low-angle. This image was taken as he started to wake up again, when it cooled down in the late afternoon.

He has just begun his life as a nomadic, young male lion, ousted from his pride; a lonely struggle for survival in the harsh Kalahari environment awaits him during the next few years. Let’s hope he goes from strength-to-strength and one day becomes a dominant pride male and fathers many cubs.
