Driving through the Kruger National Park during the day in summertime, does not afford the best opportunities to spot animals. However, if you look carefully amidst the shadows, below trees, and in the long grass, you will probably see some nocturnal hunters taking a relaxing morning nap. Best to just let sleeping cats lie. Relax is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge, this week, and images of these Lions completely relaxed below the tress are my response to the prompt.
Bob Marley’s “One Love” asked “What about – ? Let’s get together and feel all right”, perhaps we can take a few cues from the Animal Kingdom 🙂
One love is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge, and images of interaction between animals from my recent game drives are my response to the prompt…
Driving through the Kruger National Park, one can expect that you will come upon wildlife sightings on a regular basis. More often than not, someone gets there or is there before you, and the opportunity to get a decent view and photograph is determined by this. Every now and then you get to a sighting first, that presents an opportunity to get a decent sighting, and not to mention, unobstructed photographs. Perhaps there’s a sense of safety in numbers, but the encounters on your own seem to have an amplified sense of danger. On a drive through the Kruger earlier this year, we were fortunate to come across 3 male Lions having an early morning “catnap” :-), very close to the roadside. One of them was well concealed in the grass and the other two were alongside one another under the shade of a tree. One of the two under the tree momentarily twitched a foot as the vehicle came to standstill alongside them, which prompted me to be a very careful as I gently opened the window to get a few photographs of the trio. Careful is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the sleeping Lions is my response to the prompt…………………..
