King of the termite hill by Braedene

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Driving back in our safari jeep, we came across this lone lion as the sun was setting. The highest point in this area were the termite hills and he had chosen this as a vantage point. He stood mournfully calling for a female while we watched and waited. He turned and gave us shots from all angles as he called across the Mara in Kenya. A wonderful magic moment.

    WOW!!! What an awesome capture Liz! Fave.

  • He was pretty close= or we drove quite close ! Have so many different angled ones as well. Thank you very much, and even more for your fave. I have dozens of for each shot – makes it difficult to choose!! BUT, now really want a better distance lens, well, two cameras really as I hadn’t time to change the lens on many occasions. He was giving a bit of a mournful, needy moan!! :) :)

    Stunning capture of the kind of beasts!

  • Hi Gene, thank you very much. Love your shot of the roaring tiger. I got them in India last year, but not one with its mouth open!!
