This well-kept Lion appears to be auditioning for a shampoo commercial.
A South African full-time photographer based in Durban, South Africa, Adrian Burrows, captured the Lion tossing his mane about at the Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve near Krugersdorp in SA.
Adrian, a small-business owner in the security sector, was astonished by Lion’s mane flapping in the wind, looking like a salon model.
“I was thrilled to see the results of the photographs- there’s nothing quite like the thrill of seeing if you succeeded in capturing the shot you had been striving for so long.
“I’ve never captured this sort of shot before, but it’d be feasible to get similar ones in the future if you can find yourself close enough to the animals with suitable weather conditions.
When interacting with one another and then almost pampering themselves afterwards, the lions demonstrate a delicate and sociable side to their personalities.
“It almost belies the fierce and brutal side of their nature.”
