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!! #1318773

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
