We "hunted" with these lionesses through the afternoon into the evening. Every time they entered water (often since this was Okevango's wet season) they did so with trepidation. We positioned our vehicle far ahead of these two and also in about two feet of water. Shot using an EF 2X extender on a 400mm f/2.8 lens at 800mm, ISO 800, 1/2500 @ f/5.6.
Lions don't like water and they don't like being hungry. The latter trumps the former for lions in the Okevango Delta. Searching for food or higher ground; these two lions were heading somewhere with determination.
