We found this mating lion pair on the last day of a trip to the Mara last November. As it appears, he is besotted with her, only this time she was having none of it, and all he got this time was a scratched nose for his trouble.
This was one of three images that made the final round of judging in the Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition this year.
