[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As we were driving back to Kwara camp in the late morning hours, we encountered two brothers on the move in the soaring heat with the remains of a young zebra and surrounded by jackals and vultures. The pic was taken with my old FT3 and the negative was scanned on an Epson 4870 flatbed scanner.

What a magnificent lion and a stunning pose. One of those nature moments only a lucky few get to witness. He has a gorgeous mane, and his paw is gigantic. Wow! Thanks for sharing such an amazing shot with us. : )

Grrrrrr what a fantastic shot... I like the wild pose of this lion and the black and white stribes on the dead zebras leg is a fine detail showing what the lion eats today... colors and details are very fine too... TFS...Ina...
