Playtime lion style!

 

Hi there - this is my first post on the forum - thanks to Geoff Gates for telling me about the forum - I joined sometime back but have finally managed to post.

 

This series of images of a young male and female ( our guide said they were brother and sister) I photographed at Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe last year whilst on safari.

 

Hwange was incredible and hope to begin to post some of the animals seen there, as well as Chobe, Kruger and Cape Town

 

 

Regards

Hi Game Warden - would have to say our stay at Bomani Lodge next to Hwange was absolutely first class - great company who run this and other lodges - terrific staff, accomm, food and we had an exceptional guide virtually to ourselves. Animals were amazing and generally lots of them on our drives - Multiple lion sightings day and night, 2 feeding Cheetahs, Black-backed Jackal, Hyena ( 5 second glimpse!) Elans, Buffalo, Giraffes, amazing Elephants including close up views from their underground bunker, Wildebeest, Zebra, Sable, Waterbuck, Impala, Hippo, Steenbok, Kudu, Bushbaby, Spring Hare, 80 odd species of birds including 7 species of Raptors .

 

It seems game results are so variable though - in our five days we saw so much yet a couple of departing groups said they had seen very little........... perhaps a bit of luck or the guide you have?

 

Hwange is beautiful - glorious afternoon light and vegetation that to us was the Africa of our imagination ( as opposed to Kruger or Chobe )

 

Lots to love about Zimbabwe!

 

Hoping to return to Africa next year to the Serengeti!

 

cheers

Dear Guys

I am conducting lion research in Moremi Game Reserve with the botswana predator conservation trust- http://www.bpctrust.org
I recently came across this forum thread which has some lion photos in my research area.
It is possible that your pictures could help me in my research particularly as it would allow me to piece together pride histories and lion relationships. and I was wondering whether you would be willing to send me some photos (preferably with information concerning the date and location).
No pictures will be used for publication, they will just help me piece together the history of the prides in Moremi.
If you are happy to do this, please message me.
Thanks,
BotsGuy

Gosh it's going to be so tough to come up to par with just these photos on page 14! such top notch pictures and I love them all, the subject, the composition, the framing, the unique settings.

 

@@Tania, love love that second pix when the male is in midair and snarling.

 

so my pix will bring the standard down a bit for a passing moment.

Photographed in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya on 7 February, 2014 at 10:05 am, with an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super telephoto lens.

ISO 200, 1/3200 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

Who couldn't relate to the drawn-out stretch of a drowsy lion?

Before going on safaris I hadn't realized how Panthera leo are highly expressive animals.

Every encounter with lions has been great fun, watching them laze away the day alone or with family.

They're demonstrative in both expression and action, reinforcing my own sense of kinship with the natural world.
