In a previous post, Lioness, Upside Down, I wrote about two affectionate lionesses nuzzling and rubbing heads heads together, and why this occurs. These photos were taken at the same time.
The one above was taken when the lionesses, snuggled together, drifted into sleep. I like the pose, with the heads entwined, and the texture of the fur.
