A really good set of photos that cover most aspects of lions and lion pride life
See the amazon description above this is an excellent set of photos that cover much of the life of lions and the pride. the author has selected a number of telling images . the photos capture the lions and lionesses in the many roles they play, along with the wonderful photos of the cubs. you see the lion marking his territory, fending off nomadic lions, resting ang enjoying the cubs as well as getting the first go at the food.you also see lions mating to secure the next generation. there is also a picture of 5 lion brothers at a watering hole-- they would make a strong coalition in a pride takeover attempt. lionesses are seen alone or together, out hunting there are a number of photos of lionesses with cubs of various ages, nursing them, carrying one in her mouth, walking down a path, and the pride at rest, or at a watering hole. there are views of kills. summary i was really pleased with the book. like the other reviewers, one would have to say the text is brief ( several other books i have by japanese photographers are similar-- i presume it is the language gap ) image production could be better, but for me the number of first class images well outweighed this objection.
