Strike a pose! Extremely photogenic lion poses for photos

The lion looks like it could easily grace the cover of next season’s Vogue magazine.

The extremely photogenic animal appears to pose and shake its mane in the wind in these hilarious photos.

In one photo, the lion even dramatically looks in to the camera lens, and in another he rests majestically on a rock, casually not noticing the camera.

Alex Kirichko, 52, was the lucky photographer who managed to capture the posing lion in the Namiri Plains, Serengeti, Tanzania.

Alex, from Switzerland, said: “I went specifically to Namiri Plains to photograph the huge amounts of lions and cheetahs that there is there.

“That morning I was waiting for a storm to come to get some dramatic pictures, and the wind was very strong.
