Lion - with poor hygiene

I saw a couple of male lions on the Maasai Mara. One of them was covered with flies, as can be seen from these successively zoomed in photos.





So much for the idea of felines constantly staying clean...

This other lion seemed a bit bored.

Why didn't you give the poor guy a break and go shoo the flies away? He looks peaceful enough!

Those are some seriously great pictures. But, I have to say even with super-zoom I don't know if I would have wanted to get that close...
