Passion

Masai Mara, Kenya. There are few sights more impressive in nature than two lions mating. The tension, the energy and the intensity are second to none. This was two years ago and Scarface, one of the most dominant male lions in the Mara, was still in his prime. We were up early in the morning when we found him mating with a young lioness.
