A photographer was lucky enough to capture a real-life version of the Lion King on camera — as he spotted this Mufasa look-alike snoozing on a familiar-looking rock.
Will Burrard-Lucas was photographing wildlife in the Kidepo Valley National Park, a remote reserve in the north of Uganda, when he stumbled across the scene.
Burrard-Lucas had been trying to photograph a well-known dominant male lion, known by rangers as Spartacus, and when he managed to capture Spartacus, he wasn’t disappointed.
Burrard-Lucas said: “It was late in the afternoon, and the light was beautiful, but he was in long grass and I couldn’t get a clear shot. Over to my right was a beautiful kopje, which is a small hill, and I thought it would be an incredible shot if he sat on top of it.
“Well, he must have heard my thoughts because the next thing I knew, he was up and heading in that direction.” (Cater News)
