[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most lions found on Safaris are just sleeping, probably 9 out of 10 will not show any action, they are relax and ... boring.
But once they start to look for prey there facial expression will change from very tired to adrenalin boosted full attention.
This lioness just found a Zebra approaching the pride and they started to spread out without loosing track of the potential prey
