A year ago, I posted on my other account @johanlolos a photo of a lion (swipe left to see it). For a reason I can’t explain, that image received a ridiculous amount of love, and that always puzzled me as I couldn’t explain why.
Anyway, this lion was also the very first male lion I ever saw and photographed in the wild. It was back in January 2018 at @erindinamibia. It was an amazing yet a quite scary encounter as I wasn’t used at all to be so close to big predators like him.
Two months ago, along with my friend @fnventer , we were tracking male lions at Erindi. FN took us to a nice spot where 2 male lions were resting. As soon as I started to take photos of them, I instantly recognized that same lion I had photographed 18 months earlier.
How was it so obvious to me that it was the same guy, I’m not sure, but FN confirmed it when I showed him the photo I had taken the year before.
Here is a new portrait of that lion that I took last July at Erindi. It was so cool to see him again! Until next time :)
