About Lion Portraits III - Trauma
They are all called lions. Even lionesses are lions. They all look the same until you spend more time with them. Looking at the facial expressions, the scars, the way a mouth hangs open, the amount of pink on the nose, the shape of their eyes or the funky way they ‘do’ their manes. If you look at them long enough you recognize these little differences. You might even name them by their looks or behavior.
This was one scary lion. The wapuka (crazy) male from the Kalahari. He stalked our vehicle, followed us and bit one of our sideview mirrors. Not normal behavior for a lion at all. He was not ‘from around’, clearly new in the area and acted like he had some sort of bad experience with humans in the place he must have ran from. We named him Trauma and left him alone. Central Kalahari - Botswana

Over Willem Bakhuys Roozeboom
You only live twice - After spending too many years in the corporate world selling things to people that nobody really needed, Willem started his second chapter in life, capturing things that not everybody will be able to see. He sold his car to buy a camera and left his house to live in a tent in the African bush. Willem has become a wildlife photographer pur sang. Over the last 10 years he has been living in Botswana, Zambia, Kenya and Chad, to maximize his time among lions and elephants
