PLAY­TIME

go! Botswana - - CHOBE -

Janine Krayer “Lions are of­ten rather bor­ing to pho­to­graph, as they tend to snooze for up to 20 hours a day. ‘Ex­cite­ment’ comes in the form of an ear twitch or a sleepy gaze to­wards the tourists.

“This cub was play­ing with 10 sib­lings and cousins on the banks of the Chobe – we were watch­ing them from a gameview­ing ve­hi­cle. Cap­tur­ing the scene with­out mo­tion blur and with most of the cub in fo­cus re­quired a fast shut­ter speed and a nar­row aper­ture.”

HOW? Canon 7D Mark II, Canon 100 – 400 mm lens, shut­ter speed 1/1600 sec­ond, aper­ture f7.1, ISO 1600.
