Description: Dere and his Lioness separate themselves from the pride to mate

Story from behind the lens: Lions mating is a photographers dream due to the raw passion, pain and ferocity of the coupling. However this feisty Lioness gave Dere a permanent scar as she bite through his cheek. The pain and anguish on his face says it all!
