here once again in a white world,started snowing again,a nice opportunity for an archive capture,this one is a 50% crop of the original and although maybe not a superb one,I liked the way how the Lion cub was interested by the birds at the mazithi waterdam,capture is made on the occasion we saw 22 lions at this waterdam (I have already posted some other captures from this serie),

the birds on the picture are water dikkop's (birds I unfortunately dont have any closer captures),hope you like it and tfw

Hello Paul,
This is a great capture: a lioness watching a group of Water Dikkops. The POV is great and taken with superb sharpness, considering the distance that you must have been from this scene.
Thanks and best regards,

Hi Paul,
A nice capture of this beautiful bird watching by the lioness. Excellent composition and very nice view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Paul.
I like this very natural and nice scene. You have captured it perfectly in every aspect. Especially I like framing of the scene (it is very impressive), superb DOF and excellent sharpness f the entire frame. Well done. Perfect job.
