Amateur wildlife photographer Craig Aitken captured the scene at Pilanesburg nature reserve in South Africa.

Local Craig, 56, said the adult had a limp, possibly after a fight.

He added: “It was a beautiful morning with the sun enhancing the magnificent golden fur of the lions.

“There were two males, two females and three roughly three-month-old cubs. This particular male lion was limping.

“He was roughly about 100 meters away from the main pride. Perhaps he had got in a fight.

“The injured male stood up and came closer to the main pride which were roughly about 40 meters away from my vehicle.
