Re: Nice

Thanks! It was great having a stare down with a lion knowing I was safe in a vehicle.

Such a great photo!

Amazing animal; I'd love to get the chance to see one in the wild like that. How far away were you?

Re: Such a great photo!

Thank you. I was probably about 50-60 meters away from him. I took the photo with my Nikon D200 and a 300mm lens which is a 450mm with the 1.5 magnification the D200 has. You can check out a lot more shots like this one on my photo web site www.kurtwedberg.smugmug.com. I have an Africa gallery with several safari trips currently posted.
