Would it be alright if I used this image as a reference for a drawing or painting? Just for some practice. It's a lovely shot with great colours.

Amazing Shot, but I think you mean the Mighty Lazy Bum, considering male lions are lazy and the females do the hunting.

:iconrathiac:
Rathiac Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
Not to mention that whenever the females are hunting something like a water buffalo, hippo or elephant, they usually need the male's strength to bring it down. On these hunts the male is the one who delivers the killing blow to the throat of the prey.

Well, not always. Male lions spend a lot of time of their lives alone or with brothers and they do hunt. They decrease hunting a lot once they are with a group of females, but they have the funtion of protecting the territory and cubs from other males.
