Young Lion-South Africa

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Young Lion-South Africa
Young Lion-South Africa
I took this picture in Mala Mala private reserve in South Africa, this fellow bellong to the Charlton pride.
They were eating a cape buffalo, and roaring at each other.
I was about 5 to 10 meters from the scene, and used a 300mm + extender, it was almost rainnig, and they were in the shadows, so I used a very slow speed 1/50 at 5.6

WOW I can't believe if this is NOT in the monthly theme? Would Luis be allowed to resubmit this Bryan as I thought you could only post each picture once in each month? It would be a shame to miss it. Brilliant lion shot Luis including the blood around his eye. Bet he was not left hungry!!

I am not sure if you can or can't resubmit! But It would be worth trying! This is a winner in my book. It should win in the animal section as well! Great shot!
