Lioness, Kruger NP

This cat was a part of the pride that hangs around the river bed just south of the H5 turnoff on the tar road between Lower Sabie and Croc Bridge.

These cats were resting under some bushes, and a 15+ vehicle were jockeying for a view. We awaited our turn and after a while, had an unobstructed view of the cats.

The problem was that she was in the shade and the dappled light made for an ugly photo. However, as the sun started going down, the light took on redder hues and at one point, as she turned around to look at us, her eyes were in the light.

This has become my favorite lioness portrait.
