S is for Sleeping

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.

    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!

    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! 🙂

    He looks like he’s just waiting for someone to come along and ruffle his mane.

  19. T.F.Walsh says:

    Oh what a cutie pie…

  20. 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 😉
