Description: Father and Son (lions) rubbing heads with each other, expressing their love. A heart touching show of affection by the king of the jungle.

Story from behind the lens: We witnessed a fully grown male lion waking up in the morning and going down to drink water. His son soon joined from the other side and they drank their fill side by side. To our surprise, they immediately started rubbing their heads together in a wonderful show of affection and love, for well over a minute. Then the father went back up and started walking towards a shady tree. The son followed soon shadowing his father every step of the way and they both lay down to rest in the shade, almost touching each other as they prepared to sleep.
