Lion in Flight by MorkelErasmus Lion in Flight by MorkelErasmus
An African Lioness chases after her prey in a real-live wild hunt that took place in the Kalahari desert, Southern Africa.
I repeat - this is a totally WILD lion and not one doing stunts in a game park somewhere in Europe.

You can join me on safari in 2013:

Timed to perfection...full stretch and intense stare.

Important to say about the Wild animal part,too many(admitedly great looking shots)are staged at parks...this is worth many times what they are mate..

.....I REALLY need a D3S "Please Santa...I have been good,ish"
