Our vehicle arrived at the scene prior the sunrise with male lion attempting to hunt. He suddenly detected scent of a lioness in heat and froze. After inhaling air through open mouth for several seconds, he began his pursuit by interchangeably walking, running, frequently changing directions and stopping for just long enough to inhale more air and repeat it all over again. After he finally had her in his sight and successfully chased off another male lion, the lioness made her seductive move and he followed her tail, and every step trying to mate with her for the first time. She became my subject of interest, and he was now just the subordinate. With no wind, dust was coming up off their feet and hanging in the air just long enough, leaving trail behind them lit by the sun. I felt lucky to witness and capture this dramatic scene in one image.
