There are no words to decribe how majestic these males are. While we were photographing this male, his brother (almost identical!) made his way right past our vehicle towards the waterhole. Gerda got such a fright at being so close to him and realizing how massive the really are, that she froze and stopped shooting in order to first close her window! It is when they look you straight in the eye from a close range that you realize, these are not your normal house kittens!
