p.1 #1 · Gotta Be a Drain Here Somewhere!


This girl is one of a pride that spends most of its time in and around water in Botswana. Do some hunting in the water -- red lechwe, warthogs, etc. -- and do a lot of moving around in water. Maybe a pretty tricky good tactic in some situations because a pride of 20+ lions must leave a lot of scent on the ground and being in water would certainly mask that. Actually saw them chase down a warthog in the water -- pretty cool because the hog put up a wake like a hydroplane as he screamed through the water -- he actually got away by beating them to his hole. And that was pretty funny also, because he was in the hole that was not very deep and every time a lion would go in to try to get him he would douse them in dirt/dust and this would blind the lion so she would give up and the next one would give it a go. So at the end of all this, we had a warthog safe in his hole and a bunch of half-blind lionesses lying around trying to wipe their eyes clean with those mighty paws. You would have to have been there.
Cheers, Andrew

Andrew,
The way he focuses (and I like that you didn't clone out the fly above his nose) makes this very intense.
Cheers Chris
