I took this picture in lake Manyara N. P. in Tanzania.
I was right under the tree where this lioness was standing.
I used a 300mm Nikkor 2.8 AFS lens.

You lucky thing! We were in Lake Manyara NP hoping to see some tree climbing lions but no luck. Fabulous capture Luis. Amazing!! Doesn't it give her a funny shape face from that angle. Could have gone in last month's theme for unforgettable faces. #245345
