Brazilian photographer Julius Dadalti ­captured the unusual image in Amboseli National Park, Kenya.

He said: “I think he was marking his territory.

“I was following a beautiful pride and some cubs were playing with two mothers,”

“The king was lying down and acting lazy when he decided to walk around.

“After a few seconds, the lion came back and started to play with the palm tree.

“It was funny and completely beautiful to watch because it seemed like a show and sometimes he would even look at me.

Julius added: “The lions of Amboseli are gorgeous this time of year.

“There’s no doubt that they are amazing animals.”
