[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have captured this Lioness in Kruger National Park during our morning game drive. We were lucky! Not a single car that moment on the gravel road. So we watched a few seconds without being disturbed by other cars.

We couldn't predict to see her although saw a herd of elephants were running crossing the road.
Later realised why they were running madly!

All my Kruger National Park pictures were taken from self-driven car.

Hi Srikumar,a very lucky meeting,not a difficult pic to do,but a difficult species to find,perfect capture of this lioness in pose in the best way,well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

great portrait, TFS Ori

Bela foto!
pose, luz e composição atraentes.

Hi Sri,
Gorgeous photo, fantastic pose, pretty lights. I might crop a little more from the busy left side of the pic, although this may be a question of different personal tastes. Otherwise an image to be proud of, nicely composed, tack sharp and the white balance is just optimal.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Srikumar,
A fantastic image of this lioness in an attractive relaxed pose. You can easily tell she is still nursing cubs and appears to be in very good health. Love those piercing yellow eyes which seem to be studying your every movements. Tac sharp focus while showing much detail and beautiful natural color tones.
I am planning a trip to Tanzania this June (the Lord willing) and hope to also obtain some interesting photos to share.

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of fantastic lioness, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
