Sometimes it's just so tough to be the king of the bush!

fab Monday morning sighting from your office window

Angela said...

Were you really that close??? I would not want to make him angry by talking too loud. Look what happened to that antelope! But oh, is he wonderful!

Bonnie Zieman, M.Ed. said...

Val! Your neighbours are so regal and imposing! Can you let children play outside by themselves with all the incredible wildlife so close by?

Lyn said...

Oh my goodness! Soooo close to the King! He looks incredibly regal sitting on the raodway. However I admit, it was disconcerting to see him just outside your window. Hope he was a friendly neighbour.

Fire Byrd said...

How utterly fantastic.
You are so priviledged, although it may not feel like that when he's quite so close to your window!
Wonderful pics, especially him yawning.

Ooo, good morning big guy!
He is magnificent!

Val said...

Miranda - oof thanks for that - needed it. caught up to speed today. eish x

janet - yes - awesome :-)

Geli - he's magnificent hey? and not really worried by us. probably been watching us for ages, but still...

Bonnie - usually its ok although they couldnt go off wandering into the reserve alone of course. just at the moment, the lions are verymuch in this area so probably not. we dont have kids though

Lyn - yup he;s friendly! but in a lion kind of way. we prefer to keep a little distance

Fire Byrd - that feeling of wonder never goes away - really.

Rob - he surely is!

thanks dear friends for your comments - always much appreciated

What a handsome fellow! On our visit to Kruger during September we saw a number of lions. We didn't get any shots like these, most of ours are lazy sleeping lion shots! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful photos Val.

Kristin said...

Good morning, indeed!

Dumdad said...

Crikey, it's certainly bigger than our cat Scabby!

Reya Mellicker said...

OMG! What a perfect sequence. If you added a cup of coffee, it would be more like the morning routines of many of us than not!

Kerry said... He's really really close.

Val said...

thanks everyone - his visit was a fine way to start the day ;-)
Dumdad - i have a mental picture of a cat called Scabby...??

haha Reya - that is so true! except his shift was just ending

am busy with the NaNoWriMo thing at the moment, so falling behind on everything else, but still checking in - never fear
