The safari jeeps that are out and about looking for the big five (rhino, elephant, leopard, lion, buffalo) communicate amongst themselves even with rival operators in order to pass their sightings so that the tourists on safari can see these animals.
We heard that one jeep saw some lionesses that have made their kill. When we found them they were resting in the shade of some tall shrubs and we could just see the remains of a small antelope. Obviously that was just a snack and the lionesses were already on the lookout for more meat on the hoof.
As this one emerged from the shade she looked at us and for a moment I was back in time, to the era when our forefathers, mainly naked and unprotected, had to somehow avoid being the next meal. It must have been a highly charged and nervous existence before fire was tamed and weapons were made.

excellent capture of the lion, you have to be afraid of his next meal? in fact the look is not really friendly

Kod nas je dan poceo sa maglom i hladan.
Zenke su najopasniji lovci ...
Dobar ugao, ostrina snimka, kontrast i prikaz, lepe boje.
Lavica nije bila raspolozena vasim prisustvom i snimanjem, spremna je za napad i odbranu svog plena ...
Sve najbolje sa lepim secanjem na safari.

Važno je Dado da si ti meni ovde ostao živ. A kući si poneo super fotku i moći ćeš svima da pričaš kako si se lično sreo sa kraljicom. Puno pozdrava!

Hello Claudio. Face to face with a dangerous predator. The view of the lion is scary. Such experiences have been only in the wild. Overall, a great shot. My compliments. Best regards, Wolfgang.
