Male Lion Lying in Winter Grass
This handsome male lion was part of a pride that had earlier brought down a buffalo.
Although he'd eaten till his belly was full, he refused to give up a few remains of the buffalo carcass lying at his feet.
Other pride members, including another large male lion, who approached were quickly warned off with a growl and a snarl.
