Lion cub playing with a stick
The green or rainy season is an awesome time to photograph the big picture.
When you get older the saying "work smarter not harder' becomes even more apt.
How close is close enough to guarantee success?
There are not many places in the wild where images like this can be made. Wild, free roaming lions hunting through the flood waters of the Okavango.
Murphy's law is something that a wildlife photographer has to deal with on a daily basis.

One of my favorite places in the world is the Skeleton Coast in Namibia. Having the opportunity to photograph lions out here is phenomenal.
Sometimes it is just the color in an image that creates the simplicity that I strive for. The orange out of focus grass helps the lions face to pop from the image. If this flat light portrait was shot anywhere else it would have been boring.
Many people are still under the misguided belief that lions don't like water.
