A sad story about the lion skybed Scar , a story who could be the end of a Chess Grandmaster when he get old and younger Grandmasters take his place  : 

We notice a large male lion crouching on the shore.

  As our cameras clicked away you could see something was off , his posture just did not look right . After he had his fill of water he struggled to his feet hardly able to stand . 

He slowly moved away from the water and staggered as if he was drunk towards a small rise . Upon reaching the rise he turned to face the water hole and began his slow descent to the ground . About half way down he collapsed the rest of the way . It was evident he was in his last days if not his last hours on this earth .

  As we continued to watch this once beautiful and strong lion a small herd of elephants arrived at the waters edge . Then in an instant the elephants reared , ears outstretched and flapping as a elephant took several steps back , trumpeted and charged the lion .

Maybe in his younger more virile days the lion would have tried to make a stand , but not now , now it took every bit of energy he had to get to his feet turn and run . 

After everything settled down Greg and I drove to find the lion . We found him lying in the grass , exhausted unable to move . We were no more then five feet from him as he lay dying in the shade of a tree . Dropping my camera we stared at one another locking eyes for what seemed for an eternity . I just wanted him to know that he would not die alone as he struggled to breath , his chest rising only every so often . Then a last twitch of an ear , his last breath , he was gone . The King was dead .

Over the years as a photo journalist I have photographed people that had lost everything in earthquakes , fires and landslides , people that had been injured , people that were dying , but I have never photographed anything as sad as this majestic animal , the true king of the beasts and master of his domain . I will never forget what I was so privileged to have witnessed . 

Later we learned that the name of this noble lion was Skybed Scar . The lion was well known in The Kruger national Park where he roamed and ruled for many years . He lived free and he died free .

AMAZING

I do recall that you were talking about how you were the "superior lion".
