Three years ago I was on safari in Kenya; what a splendid country and what a pleasant population! I have photographed this lion in the Masai Mara on less than 10 meters distance.

Hello Adri,
A great shot! The model requires respect, but is a cute cat nevertheless ;) Wonderful colours and details. The entire composition is very warm and pleasant.
Well done, congratulations!

The Lion Queen, actually...
Mooi qua compo & kleur, Adri. Maar in het vervolg toch eerst even dat gras gaan uittrekken zodat we haar in haar volle pracht kunnen bewonderen ;o)). Ik vind 'm een klein beetje oververscherpt, vooral in de pels. D'r ogen daarentegen zijn perfect scherp. Mooi dier!

Hi Adri. Completely agree with your note. Been twice and loved it.

This is a majestic capture - looking straight at you. The colours are exactly as I remember them and the catchlight in the moggie's eyes bring it to life.

I've got a few posts of Kenya on my TE/TL?TN sites. I'm NOT fishing for points - just for you to have a look if you're interested.

Great work. Paul.

Hello Adri,

You had a lot of courage to take this picture so close to the lion. An excellent picture, sharp and with great level of details. Beautiful natural colours.

Best regards,

good warm light,
a bit hidden but finaly nice different shot than a classic portrait of lions

Hello Adri,
Wow! that's a fantastic shot, good composition and pov, nice sharpness and lovely colors.

Hi Adri,

Wow!! Amazing capture. Her eyes are very angry. Perhaps your vehicle might have disturbed her. Nice colors and POV. TFS.


Nice shot, good detail, colour and POF.

Hello Adri
There's a lot to like about this shot. Big cat in the tall grass, low angled lighting, tack sharp and great eye contact.

Hoi Adri,
Zo zie je maa, wie bewaard die heeft wat! En dat is niet lelijk mijn vriend, prachtige opname van mevrouw leeuwin, geweldig die oogopslag, ik neem de sprietjes voor haar kop maar voor lief deze keer :-)
