Description

It's after dark in the very remote Ruaha National Park in South Central Tanzania, and the lions are out and about! The lion is not really grinning in cheerful anticipation of killing something, it is the very end of an expansive yawn. The source of the light in the photo is a flashlight with red light filter. The filter keeps the lion's night vision from being affected by the light. These guys were hunting very close to the vehicle. The image was taken with a Canon EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II LSM lens. The exposure settings were 1/400 sec at f/6.3, ISO 16000, 400 mm.
