[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On the road from Olifantscamp to Skukuza I met this lioness. it is very strange to see, because lions are social animals and she was very alone.
She walked on the tarred road and looked very tired.
I hope you like this close up because I almost could touch her.

Thanks for looking

Hi Vivian,
I love this close up. Outstanding of the lioness.
Magnificent animal and Great Shot!!!


Hola Vivian, impresionante primer plano, una toma nitida con buenos detalles y un encuadre acertado. Un saludo

Hallo Vivian,
Eerst en vooral de groeten:-)
Mooie leeuwin. Vreemd dat ze alleen was...
Ik herinner me eens twee leeuwinnen ontmoet te hebben aan de zijkant van de weg.
Toch maar beter voorzichtig zijn...
Dank u wel voor de foto.

Hi Vivien.
Great close-up. I like all in it. Amazing framing, wonderful details and sharpness of the lioness image. BG is perfectly smoothed and looks greatly. Well done and kind wishes.
