[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lion drinking water in Etosha.

Feeding/drinking Habits:
As carnivores, feeding entirely on the flesh of other mammals, lions have 30 teeth, including large piercing canines to grab and kill prey, scissorlike molars to slice into flesh, and small incisors to scrape meat from bones. Much of their hunting is done at night and in the very early dawn. When feeding on a large kill, a lion can eat almost 36 kg of meat in one feeding and then not need to eat for several days. On average, a lion needs to eat about 5 kg of meat daily.

Hello Morne,
Truly a beautiful image and a once in a lift time shot I think. Nature at it's best. Good note too. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Hi Morne,
this is a fantastic picture, not many could see this scene,
The picture is sharp with good DOF and with a fine low POV.
The only nit is, it a bit pale , "washout", you could easily fix this in your program, I did a WS to show what can be done.
Well done.
Welcome to TN.

Nicely done Morne. Excellent composure, DOF and caught at the right moment.


Welcome to TN!
I must compliment you on an excellent image. Your POV is very unique in this situation. I like your composition albeit a tight composition. The detail, DOF, BG, colours, clarity, soft lighting and sharpness all make a high quality image!
