The stare that cuts right through you. A lioness that was quite happy having her portrait taken, or so it seemed. Every click of the shutter made me hope my shares with her were friendly.

South Africa.


All I will ever shoot is a camera… all I will ever capture is a moment of beauty. May I tickle your fancy and make you laugh!!

    She was sizing up lunch…? ;)

    Even though she’s sitting quite still, she looks like she’s ready to pounce at any given moment.

    Lovely capture, S… xxxx

  • Hello Mom, she was actually very calm and peaceful. and came and sat down closer to me. Im under no illusion that i could start patting her but she was very tame. even though her stare was piercing she doesnt look agressive. thank you xox

    What a beautiful animal, and a lovely photo of her! Was she really that pale or is it just the light? Great work, congrats on the feature!

  • Thank You Damienne, yes she was in the shade and a far as I know she is a white Lion.
