When you are alone and in the presence of a Kalahari black mane lion, a primeval fear takes a hold of you. Even though you tell yourself "you'r safe" you can not totally shake this feeling. It's there lodged in the back of your mind.
This majestic animal once was the bane of a forefathers who lived on this land. They created kraals around there dwellings to keep there families and livestock safe .
When you are a few meters from this killing machine and hispredatorily eyes lock with yours ,you will be chilled to the bone.
Salvadora | Lion Portrait | Fine Art Canvas | Wildlife Prints
One of my favorite waterholes to sit and contemplate, is Salvadora overlooking Etosha Pan. The view is endless and you can't help but feel so small and lost in such a vast wilderness.
This Kalahari Black mane Lion called this vast wilderness "Home" I called him Salvadora
I spent many an hour in his presence. He was past his prime ands suffered with a bad limp. But for now he still is ruler of his domain.
Lion Stare | Canvas Prints | Wall Art
Photographing a Kalahari Lion in his prime is a wonderful experience, but sometimes when you look them in the eye, one can't help feel intimidated.
I tracked this male kalahari lion for many miles as he marked his territory. It was a fascinating observing his "marking rituals.
This black mane lion was coming in his prime and he was looking for mates and territory, From his size and behaviour these needs will soon be his.

And she just sat there for hours and hours and hours..
That is how it can be a photo safari tour . One minute all action next minute all quite. But no matter what its is never dull or boring but always exhilarating and I love the adrenaline rush I get from Wildlife photography.
Cheetah & Cub | Nature Photos | Wildlife Art
Cheetah and Cub Surveying the Grasslands for Prey. I waited a few hours observing this mother cheetah on the plains of etosha. To be honest the prey was so far away. I did not expect a hunt. But with African wildlife one must expect the unexpected. The adult cheetah chose a springbok in the distance. Moved closer and the with still some distance to go sped off.
Watching a cheetah in full flight. Is observing evolution at is best. These frican cats are engineered for speed. I gave up trying to track her in flight with the camera. I just sat back and marveled at nature in motion. Truly amazing creatures the queen of africas savannah, The cheetah.
Lioness & Zebra | Nature Photography Prints
Black and White Photograph of a Lioness Hunting Zebras
I often find lion hunts and kills sometimes a bit disappointing. 7 out of ten hunts are unsuccessful. Kills are over quickly and unless you are in the correct position, the action is over and the eating commences and that is not worthy fine art photography.
I tend to enjoy the unsuccessful hunts more as was this case with this in experience female. The lioness let the zebras walk right pass her and waited a good few meters before she launched her attack.
Too far away from her quarry the Zebra galloped away.
