Beating The Heat

It is the height of the afternoon heat and lying “comfortably?” in the shade is this gorgeous lioness.

The  muddy rock must feel like a better pillow than it looks.  I love her protruding little pink tongue – my kitties sleep like that sometimes.

This was on a day safari in Tanzania a few years ago – within the Selous Game Reserve (which is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the largest preserves in the world).

    Wow! What a wonderful moment to have had!! She’s gorgeous! I agree it doesn’t look too comfy.
