    Wow! What a fantastic catch Erik! Look at those teeth! Yikes! I think you’re too close!! lol A fav for sure!

  • Interestingly, in Kruger National Park some of the animals actually use the roads to get around – and this lion was standing right next to the road and completely ignored the vehicles!

    Great shot! It still is a youngster, isn’t it?
    I love the toning, he nearly blends in the background!!

  • I’m no expert on this, but I was told that this was the dominant male in that part of the Kruger National Park…
