Lion at kill, Kruger NP

Lions that stare at you are confident, dominant lions. But there are friendly stares and there are unfriendly stares. Well-fed pride lions will stare at people with a relaxed, almost good-humored look (called "play face").

This, however, was not a friendly stare. Already, one of the lionesses at the kill had mock-charged a small car that had come too close (something I hadn't seen before). We were all keeping a respectful distance, but big guy here wanted to make sure we weren't up to any funny business.
