Male Lion Close-Up

This lion was sighted near the road in Kruger Park in the company of another large male. The pair had been feeding on the remains of a buffalo kill. It's possible the eye injury occurred during the buffalo kill, but from the scars on the lion's face, it's clear he'd been in the wars on many previous occasions.
