I shot this lion (with my Canon Rebel XTi).
O, what a harrowing near death experience, with many narrow escapes!
Surely, any lesser man would have turned-tail and run,.... or been devoured by this unpredictable, savage beast. But my uncommon strength, courage, and cunning prevailed, and I got a direct shot and I beat the beast!
As for my shameless immodesty, I am merely maintaining an African tradition and proverb:
Until lions have their own “storytellers,” tales of the lion hunt will always glorify the hunter.
|Did I mention that I snuck up behind him and shook salt on his tail and that sapped him of his strength, and I hog-tied him and brought him home and trained him, and now he guards my gate???|
