Description: A Female Lion Draws her Male into Mating with Her.

Story from behind the lens: This image was made with a pole-cam discreetly lowered to the ground. The low angle-of-view draws the viewer into the scene and adds to the intimate nature of the image. This female used all manner of body language, including using her tail, to draw the male into the beautiful act of mating.
