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.
