[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the 3 lion brothers at the 3 buffalo kills.
At this stage they were very full and did not really make a move to chase the vultures. This one just gave them a glance over his shoulder and then turned back to lie down and take a snooze.

I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I enjoyed taking it and thanks to everyone for the support so far.

Hello Natley,
after three months and I wish you all my heart a warm welcome on TN. Comments beautiful and more points! I'm glad to see that you are defeated "fear" or fear and you had the courage to post on TN. Why not?
And I am happy to see other landscapes, other species of plants and animals from different parts of the world.
Good luck in the future.
Best thoughts,

Hi Natley,

Incredible portrait of this innocent looking lion, the low POV works extremely well. The lion looks nice and sharp, good idea with the out of focus BG. The subject stand out well. I also give you a special thanks for the previous posting on the elephant sleeping with great notes too.
Have a great night!

Hi Natley,
tight cropping gives good details to be seen
Such a very lively capture on the eye.
Well presented shot in pin sharp clarity.


Hello Natley! Excellent work. Dangerous POV. Perfect capture. Natural lightness. Natural colours. Good sharp. Well done!
