Lion flicks mighty mane as flies swarm his face
This mighty King of the jungle got caught on camera getting annoyed by a cloud of flies.
The majestic creature was just trying to relax when a swarm of the insects surrounded him and would not leave him alone.
Shaking its head did not help in getting rid of the flies that kept following him even after he walked away.
Saeed Al Jafar, 48, is a businessman from Kuwait and has been doing photography for the past 28 years.
He managed to capture the beautiful animal in Masai Mara, Kenya.
Saeed said: “There was a small pride of lions having a prey, the male had just finished eating.
“That’s why he has a lot of flies around him.
“I was thinking of how patient he must be with hundreds of flies on his eyes, mouth, and nose.
“It is remarkable how these small creatures like the flies could ‘beat’ the monster of the jungle who beats everyone but no one beats him.”
