The other exciting animals that we saw during our stay at Ongava were lions!  Mostly they just lie around so are easy to photograph.  Here's a young male checking out a female to see if she's receptive to his advances or not.  This face is called a flehmen-it's a German word, but there isn't any word for it in English.
He is persistent.
But is rejected--poor guy.
Now that I've learned about animations, I couldn't resist making another.  Lions tend to lie around all day and sometimes like to 'take the air' a little.
Sorry I don't know how to make him pause when he's fully on his back.
This is the last of the Namibia letters.  On to Botswana next.
