Hi all…today you are all in for a real treat. I finally was able to capture lions in the rain! I have this list of photographs I want to capture sometime in my career and this was one of them that I can now tick off!!! Very happy about this one! I always wanted lions in the rain and this time I even got a bonus with the sun peeking out briefly. This shot was taken with my new baby-Nikon D3s, 600mm F4. The lionesses look content with just putting up with the downpour for a while as they know, as well as I do, that the showers here in the Kalahari do not last very long. They provide a short relief from the scorching heat usually rolling in around 4-5pm to cool things off.
Enjoy this one and let me know what you think. I am very happy with it.
