Two male lions photographed in… a particularly intimate situation

Two male lions photographed in… a particularly intimate situation

Amateur wildlife photographer Russ Bridges managed to snap a series of photos that find two adult male lions at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in a rather compromising position. As one lion pins down the other, a lioness lies idly nearby, no doubt all “wtf?”

“There are two males and a female in that pride,” Bridges tells The Independent. “One of the lions suddenly got up, walked over, and jumped on his friend’s back.”

“A fair few people were watching this going on and laughing – they were all commenting on what it looked like. I think it was a bit of a ‘should have gone to Specsavers’ moment as the lioness was just lying there next to them.

In fairness though, every time a male went near her she snarled and swiped their faces with her paw. It’s not really unusual for them to act that way sometimes. I don’t know if it’s a dominance thing or something like that – it looks as if they are aggressive, but it’s all play between friends….

Usually they lay asleep doing nothing when I go to photograph them, but this time they were up and about. My favorite shot is the one where he appears to be sticking his tongue out.

I’ve never seen a shot of two males on top of one another with one sticking his tongue out before – it’s like he’s showing some pride in what he’s doing.”
