Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia
Royal Airstrip, Zambia
It was an extremely hot, very dry 42 degree November day in the Lower Zambezi National Park in Zambia. As the sun began to drop in the sky the lions started to perk up, interact with each other, yawn and look around. This old female had missing teeth, many scars, and her canines were quite worn down. But she gave the impression of knowing exactly what she was doing.
I took the image with a Canon 7D Mark II with a Canon EF 200 - 400 mm f/4L IS Extender lens. The exposure settings were 1/1600 sec at f/6.3, ISO 1250, 560 mm.
