|I don't know who called the lion the "king of beasts" but whoever it was obviously never ran into one of these guys! At 6000 kg and 3 m tall at the shoulders, Etosha elephants (the world's largest) would have a lion for breakfast if they weren't strict vegetarians! They can be very dangerous especially when they are in musth as is this one. It's best to give them lots of right of way. A few days ago, an elephant in Zambia trampled into a pancake a poacher who had got too close and, fortunately, missed his target.|

The lion is the king of the beasts.....but this animal is most certainly in charge.
remarkable capture of a large elephant. fine frontal POV with eye contact. splendid sharpness and natural colors.
