Two male lions were discovered and photographed ‘mating’ in a safari park in Botswana, after ignoring a pregnant lioness.
The photographs were captured by Nicole Cambré, a Belgium photographer who started out professionally as a photographer in 2011.
Cambre’s images are mainly documentary falling within the category of travel, street, and wildlife.
Cambre who was a first place winner of Wildlife Discovery of the Year in 2014, in the Monochrome Awards 2014 International Black & White Photography Contest, said of the photographs.
“These males had pushed out the resident males earlier in the year and the other female lions had headed into the Mopani woodlands; an area difficult to access with a safari vehicle”
“Only one lioness was seen in the centre of the concession where the male lions were and the lions showed no interest in the lioness leading to the assumption that she may have been pregnant”
‘It is the first time I have seen homosexual behavior in lions, but when reading about it upon my return, it is not that uncommon. With the light just around sunset, it gave some spectacular images”
This will further prove that if animals can express same gender loving behaviors, and find a way to express their emotions toward each other in a loving way, then clearly nothing stops two same gender human adults with full knowledge of how they truly feel about each other from engaging in an act of love.
This is not the first time that homosexuality in animal has been discovered, even though this may be the first time for lions.
If homosexuality can be found in animals, then clearly it is present in other forms of nature, and this breaks forth beyond all tainted arguments that homosexuality is unnatural.
