Scratch my tummy .... Please!

F4, 1/350, ISO100, 300mm

The female lions had already started eating on the carcass when this old male arrived. He sat down watching the females and then, very bored with life, started showing off. First he yawned. Then he washed himself and finally he rolled around on the wet grass before getting up to join the meal.
