After the Fact We came across this female being followed by 2 males in the Okavango Delta, then watched as one of them got closer and sat around. She eventually got tired of waiting and took action, swishing in front of him, which he couldn't resist. We watched them while he mounted her then she turned on him, and I was lucky enough to get this shot.  Botswana,Fall,Geotagged,Lion,Panthera leo Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

The lion is one of the five big cats in the genus ''Panthera'' and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies found in Africa. With some males exceeding 250 kg in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger.
