[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the famous tree lions of Lake Manyara, Tanzania!!!
I took this shot lying down on the car's floor pointing up!!! She was right above me, and almost "releaved" herself on me!!!
I used a 300mm plus a 2x extender.

Very nice "tight" composition. The expression in the lioness's face is very nice. TFS

Celle là, je la connaissais.......


Hola Luis,
Magnífica pose de la leona! Me gusta esa mirada hacia la lejanía. El foco tal vez no es óptimo, pero la composición es excelente

you have got the most wonderful shot of a lion i have ever seen...and so 'personal' you almost felt you could reach out and touch her
when i visited manyara we saw the baboons in abundance and some lions..but as it happened they were lying under some trees at one of the toilet blocks with a half eaten zebra stuffed in a bush...
we had to go elsewhere to 'get relief'..in the bushes!!
thats pretty damn sharp...what flash did you use..
