This photo was taken in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. It is included in my recently published book (Random House Struik--Cape Town), Kalahari Summer in photographs and oils. I've had people laughingly say, "That's a Hollywood lion photoshopped into an English country garden." Nope, it is just the product of a summer of good rains at exactly the right time to produce such a riot of blossoms and a lion who conveniently plopped down in exactly the right place.

Happy this was bumped up; I had missed it....Amazing photos all.

 

I have some lion photos I love...but I'd never have the nerve to show them against these great shots. But observing the lighting, and composition of great photograph is helping me already!

 

So thanks everyone :)

@@Morkel Erasmus,

 

I need to take YOU with us :D

 

I read your blog and tuned into the Giraffe/Lion encounter.. amazing, along with the story told.

 

I learn more from seeing photos; someone starts talking "f-stops,iso, - NOISE"(that took forever to figure) How could a camera make noise? LOL

I get blurry eyed....

 

But it helps to observe,

....and hoping Craig has a bit of knowledge to share.. I hope I don't drive him crazy over 13 days :rolleyes:

Usually it's the female who kicks up a fuss post mating, but this time she thought it wise to steer clear of those teeth!
