This is one of 4 of a male coalition called the Majingilanes, He was busy on a buffalo kill when hyena were harassing him and his brother. He stood up quickly and gave a very menacing stance and glare that he meant business. The hyena quickly backed off. The back lighting gives him a very real powerful look.

Shot taken at Lion Sands, Sabi Sands, South Africa
