Lion Pride Crossing The Okavango Waters
near Chitabe Camp, Okavango Delta, Botswana. July 2011
Nikon D3x, 70-200mm f/2.8, 1/250 sec @ f/8, ISO 640
We waited and watched patiently for a pride of lions, sans adult males, to cross some open water in Botswana’s Okavango Delta, and our patience paid off. I have about 50 different images of them walking towards the vehicle, but the one that I like the most is this one, as I had most of the eyes visible. I also like the gentle curve of the lions from right to left. I do wish that I had used a 2nd camera with a wide angle lens, as my 70mm was barely enough to fit them all into the scene.
