[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
To anyone who has heard the lion roar, it is a truely amazing sound and experience.
Taken along the banks of the Sabi River just outside Lower Sabie, this lion and his brother / friend were calling together, the other lion was just to the left of this picture.

The lions are not in top quality condition and we saw two sets that day, both groups were very out of condition.

Wonderful experience and glad I can share this moment with the site!
Cheers. Tim

Hi Tim,
a great moment caught very well, i envy your experience! Great focus and DOF, the blurred subtle BG is great. Any idea why they were so out of shape? Poor diet perhaps? These magnificant creatures seem to be sadly on the edge all the time these days...
lovely shot, well done.

Hi Tim
great capture with stunning sharpness.
I almost hear the lion. Great compo too with lovely BG.

Hello Tim
That is a roar and not a yawn. You can see it...:-)
Good shot; very sharp, super composed, outstanding DOF.
