[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image was captured in Etosha National Park near the Namutoni water hole. As mentioned in some of my previous lion uploads, this is the Kudu which the Lion pride caught early that morning. This was taken at 07:18 AM and the first sun rays had just touched the scene.
Enjoy and comments/critique are welcome.

Hello Carl,
I can only dream of what it must be like living in such an area where this happens on a daily basis. What an awesome opportunity you have to share such sights with those from all around the world.
The detail is exceptional and the colors true and natural. Fantastic moment!!

Hello Carl,
Terrific view of this natural scene of life in the wild. Absolutely the best time of day for photography but worthless if one is not there. Wonderful illumination and quality. Very well done my friend. Best wishes for a good week ahead.

Hallo Carl,
Indrukwekkende foto van deze leeuwen. Grootse timing. Uitstekende scherpte en mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Je had veel geluk om zo'n scene van zo dichtbij te kunnen bekijken.

Bonjour Carl,
Très belle mais dure scène de la vie sauvage restituée avec beaucoup de réalisme.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Carl.
A bit dramatic scene but is natural absolutely. I welcome shallow DOF and nice blurriness of the remote trees against sharp image of the main subject. TFS and best wishes.

Cruda y real escena, con gran realismo en todo el conjunto. Te pone en escena !
Saludos Carl: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Carl, Fabulous action shot here my good friend, at 135mm you must have been very close hmmm great stuff!, lovely low natural light, nice and sharp, superb effort here Carl and very well done,
Best Regards,


Hi Carl,
Action as it's best! Terrific moment, very interesting photo. Bravo! I'm actually curious how closed you were to the lions, and how the original (I mean non-cropped) scene looked alike. Nevertheless, a great job.
Have a prosperous 2013, best regards, László
