p.1 #1 · Death March!


This is part of a large pride in Botswana that spends a good part of its time in the water -- sometimes even hunting in the water. They are pretty good at putting on the "Damn , I am miserable" expression whenever they see someone with a camera -- so I didn't get too many happy faces from them -- too bad. Actually one time saw this pride get into a bust-up with another smaller pride -- these guys had just killed and were eating a red lechwe (mid sized antelope) when the second pride showed up in the bushes about 100ft away. And so, for about 15 seconds absolute chaos reigned as everyone went at it -- nobody got seriously hurt but everyone got scattered over a watery area of maybe a half square mile. It was interesting, then, watching them finding all their troops and reassembling their respective prides -- after a 15 second fight it took them hours to find everyone and restore normalcy.
Cheers, Andrew

Great captured hunting line, Andrew.
Do they always walk behind each other through the water?

What a thing to experience. It does looks like they mean business. Love the perspective of the line-up. Great shot.

Nice. The leader looks quite miserable, but very determined.

Nice shot that I think could be made even stronger by eliminating (cropping) the last two lions. Because the penultimate one has its head up and slightly to its left (it actually may be aligned perfectly with the first but the shooting angle throws it off) it somewhat disturbs the flow....I just lifted the image up a bit removing the last two and IMHO that strengthens the shot immeasurably. Obviously, if that lion's head was down then having all five the way you did would be preferable. Just my take on it.
