really, they're just big cats - queen elizabeth natl park

  1. one of the more fun aspects of being around the lions was seeing them behave just like cats. all the same mannerisms and interactions.

    there were 9 lions all sacked out under a tree just 10-15 yards off the 4WD track. they really didn't pay any attention to us, just looking up if we turned the car on to pull forward for a new angle. and it's not like they're used to humans, ishasha isn't an oft-visited park. i think they just don't really care about us because they know they can eat us if they want.

    the one thing i wished i could do photographing them was get down lower. but that would mean getting out of the car which for some reason isn't allowed. so i rested my lens on the door and fired away.
