This week’s letter for Frizztext’s A-Z archive photo challenge is S. We spied this lion in the Okavango Delta. Even though there was a jeep full of people snapping photos this lion didn’t seem to mind and continued snoozing.

Aww, he looks so gentle and peaceful!! Did you get down and give him a cuddle?!?! LOL
I think that would be a different entry for S is for suicide so I resisted cuddling. I wonder how long it would take him to take care of me to continue his nap.
Not long, I’m sure 🙂
I think you are right.
Amazing creatures. And who would dare interrupt his nap?
Not I…bravery is not really in my vocab when dealing with nature.
Aww, he looks like a total darling here. 🙂 Great photo for S! 🙂
“There’s those dang people again.”
It has to get annoying.
Aww, he’s a cutie! I can see you resisted the temptation to tickle his neck 🙂
LOL…I’m sure I would be on the losing end.
He looks adorable but I suspect if he was awake he would have been a little less adorable!!! Great picture! Can’t wait to take some like that of my own…someday!
I hope you do and take lots of photos to share with us!
How beautifully sleeping… Like a cat 🙂 Wonderful photograph, Thank you dear TBM, with my love, nia
Wim-o-weh o-wim-o-whe…! 😉
I like your blog so much, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award.
Thanks so much for the nomination. And congrats to you!
There’s my lion friend.
I’m sure he’ll be back after his nap.
So cute… yet dangerous!
I wouldn’t want to find out.
aw so cute
Awww. Can a lion be adorable?
I think so…as long as they aren’t attacking.
Isn’t he sweet…deceptively so…great image
I saw his “breakfast” the next day and he wasn’t so sweet after we left.
Lovely shot sooo relaxed
I wish I could sleep like that and look cute.
How close did you get to this sleeping beauty? Wow!
Pretty close actually, but we were in a jeep and staying extremely quiet.
Great shot of the sleeping lion! That’s when they are the most gentle looking.
When you see a lion like this you almost forget that they are predators…almost.
Right at this moment, I wish I was a lion… It is only 10.20am, and I’m ready for a nap! As a lion, I would be able to nap whenever the heck I wanted to! 🙂
That is true…it is raining here so a nap sounds wonderful! I hope you get some rest 🙂
He looks like he’s just waiting for someone to come along and ruffle his mane.
I would love to see that!
Oh what a cutie pie…
Isn’t he…he looks so nice…
what a great contrast: the strong, big lion asleep, so he’s actually vulnerable at the moment. I get sleepy too seeing this lion sleeping so peacefully 😉
He does make sleeping look so enticing.
Over did it on the Gazelle at lunchtime I expect 😉 Nice shot for the challenge
Thanks…I wish I could sleep like this after a big meal.
Wow! Terrific shot! 😉
