[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Etosha National Game Park is a very dry area. In the evening almost all the animals are going to the waterholes. Outside the waterholes it's very desolate and empty. We were going to look if we can find something. So here is the result. A family of five lions with in the background ostriches. Two cubs were playing in the eveningsun.

This photo is a scanned slide.

lovely scene

tfs mario

What I would give to have been able to take that shot, nice work.


Hi Peter,

Great shot of these lions. I think that the picture is more effective being some way off the action and including some of the pride, rather than being a tight close-up. Very effective shot.

Kind regards,


Hello Peter

Great action photo of these 2 lion cubs playing,
the evening light, with the panorama framing,
and the background ostriches are giving African
atmosphere effect, TFS
