[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Selous has a healthy population of 4,000 lions. These are a common sighting in the northern sector, but in particular along the lakes and in the Beho Beho area. Due to the dense vegetation they are, however, less frequently observed compared to the open grasslands in the Serengeti. According to research approximately 11 prides with about 80 adults and over 20 cubs live along the Rufiji River. The distant roaring of lions, which can be heard as far as 8km away, is a common sound at night. For the new safari enthusiast this can be rather frightening, as lions can throw their voices and often appear to be right outside your tent when in reality they are several 100 meters away.

Hello Ronny,

Hope you are doing fine. I have missed commenting on your photos quite often and this does create an unease which perhaps we all feel when we are hard pressed for time and cannot afford comments...a pity indeed!
All said, a fine fine shot of this beautiful lion.One which is worth publishing in the national Geographic magazine and I mean it, it has quality of that class. I am all praise, thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

warm regards/Abid

Nice shot of this lion head. Excellent sharpness, details, but a bit dark. The portrait on itself is great. Fine composition.
