The Lion With One Eye — and His “Pride” and Joy: A Photographic Chronology

ithin 90 minutes of entering the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, the first lions were spotted — well…not spotted like leopards and cheetahs, but rather sighted — by us in the late afternoon sun on the first part of the safari; and this fellow apparently only had one eye.

He was with his lioness, who appeared to be his “pride” and joy.

I will just let the photographs of the lion with one eye speak for themselves. They are presented here in chronological order. This was just one of many experiences I enjoyed while on safari in Kenya. If you missed it, please be sure to see this photographic essay of a cheetah who suddenly and successfully hunted for its prey

…and I intend to post additional photographic essays of what I saw while on safari in future articles here at The Gate. Please stay tuned…
