Anybody who has seen in the past the famous BBC "Big Cat's Diary" TV series with Jonathan Scott, Simon King and Saba Douglas Hamilton will certainly remember that the two starring lion prides were...the marsh pride and the ridge pride. This male lion is no ordinary lion! He is the ruler and dominant male of the marsh pride, probably the strongest and most successful lion pride in the whole Masai Mara. By the time I took this shot (late August 2008) this pride numbered 25 individuals, among them 3 adult males, 10 females and about 12 cubs of various ages. Being the alpha male in such a competitive and large pride means power, personality, character and beauty! I hope my shot will prove a testimony to all these!!
