[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This male lion didn't seem to like us at all. For one reason or another he displayed some unusual and agressive behaviour towards our vehicle (an open Landrover). He came walking to the vehicle and stood within 3 metres studying us very intently for half a minute...
Picture taken at the Deception Valley Lodge concession, adjacent to the Central Kalahari N.P.

Dear Daniel,
Very well captured expressions of this lion. Excellent sharpness, POV & eyes contact with the majestic lion. TFS.

Hallo DaniŽl,
Dit soort momenten zijn altijd weer spannend en doet je hart wel wat in ritme versnellen. Heb dit zelf ook een paar keer meegemaakt, ook in een open landrover.
Prachtig scherpe opname in mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Zijn gebit is erg goed zichtbaar zo. Goede compositie.
