Male Lions: Guardians of the Pride
A Visual Journey
To pay tribute to an embodiment of strength and guardianship, I present you with a photograph of a male lion at dawn. He had spent the entire night roaming our camp and roaring to mark his territory, to protect his pride from potential interlopers. I know this because we were there, hearing hippos flee and crickets go silent in deference to the King of the Jungle.
And the morning, there he was at dawn.
This image reminds me of the protective and nurturing spirit of humans & fathers around the world.
