Lioness in Botswana
Wouldn't you be tired if you'd spent the night helping your sister lionesses chase down a gnu, let the big male eat his fill, then you and the the other lionesses and cubs eat your fill? It is time for a nap after all that!
We found ourselves in our TOPLESS vehicle in the path of a pride of 10 lions one morning just at sunrise. I took this picture after the pride, one male, 4 lionesses, 5 cubs, approached us, passed us, settled down in some thorn bush shade for a needed rest. All I could do was click and hope the lions had eaten their fill.....
I took this photo in the Kalahari area of Botswana, Africa using a 400mm lens. This photo has not been cropped.
