Animals are some of the most wonderful creations on our planet. Here are some shots of a lion couple before and after the mating process. I hope they created an offspring for future generations to see in the wild.

And are they about to create? ….lol 😉
Yes…every 15-20 minutes for four days, day and night. It’s an amazing process.
Ha… even in the animal kingdom females and males have arguments…:)
I’m sure they do…and then they make up.
A romantic couple 🙂
Yes…it was a pleasant surprise.
Oh that’s surprisingly romantic. I don’t know why I’m surprised. I guess I expected them to go their separate ways. How sweet!
They spend many days together before he goes back to patrolling their territory.
Whoa amazing photo
Thanks…it was cool to see.
Wow! Amazing shots, TBM!
Just a beautiful spectacle. Such magnificent creatures. Nature is full of wonders!
It surprises me each day…I love it.
I love it!! That first shot is just wonderful…like a dance
Yes…like a dance. Great way to put it.
playful.. love it
It was refreshing to see.
That’s awesome! 🙂 Love it.
I love the playfulness and the tenderness they shared too… Great post! 🙂
Thanks…it was nice to see how they tender they were. Some of the animal shows I’ve seen weren’t so romantic.
such a beautiful world we live in.
It really is. I appreciate it more and more each day.
what great images…she looks so playful and in to him
I was happy to see that. I wasn’t expecting to see romance at all, but they look like a sweet couple.
They remind me very much of domestic cats.
I really enjoy your blog — you’ve been so many places I will probably never go, and you have excellent photos!
Thanks Anita! It was odd watching these wild cats and seeing how much they reminded me of my cat back home.
The female looks like she’s doing the play bow that dogs often do when they want to initiate play with another dog. 🙂
I can see that…and she is the one who selects her mate. I was impressed by that.
oooh, wonderful idea tbm!
Thanks…they get the credit for the idea though 😉
What amazing wild kindom scenes you have captured, TBM!
It was wild and beautiful.

What a beautiful couple 🙂
I agree 🙂
Great work my friend 🙂
I wouldn’t mind if we didn’t see the offspring, but I would like to know there were still lions despite our increasing footprint on the world.
It is depressing to think about how many animals are threatened due to our footprint.

And you created magnificent images with your camera
So much like people
I hadn’t thought of that, but I can see it 🙂
That’s a great interpretation! The photos are fantastic, and that first one – wow- how amazing it must have been to see that!
I was amazed when I realized what was actually happening. Never thought I would see that in the wild.
How beautiful. 🙂
They are a gorgeous pair.
They know how to get romantic.
Yes they do.
I have nominated you today for the “Beautiful Blogger Award”. Enjoy it.
Thanks so much and congrats to you!!!
It is my pleasure.

Wow! Amazing shots!
I don’t think mankind can compete with God’s creations. 😉
Animals and all of their beauty astound me.
You’ve definitely made it your life’s work to photograph God’s creatures in their natural beauty.
hugs for sharing them.
I admire all creatures, even the ones that scare me. Thanks for letting me share them 🙂
This one should have its own ‘love’ button!
LOL…that would be perfect for the couple.
ah ha! beautiful scene to go with the theme! 🙂
Thanks…and lets hope for some beautiful babies 🙂
Aw…they are snuggling in the “afterglow”. 🙂 Sweet pictures!
lol…afterglow. I love it!
Ah, love. Playfulness. Then fullness of heart.
Fullness of heart…I like that.
A perfect way to put it.
