A really powerful image, taken at Rooiputs Waterhole in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Anthony has gone down to ground level and is literally engaging eye-to-eye with the lioness at a waterhole. It’s not a technically difficult shot, but it’s nicely balanced, crispy sharp, well exposed and taken in good light all key elements in creating a great shot. The timing is spot on, capturing the exact moment the tongue slurps the water. I like the use of a limited depth of field, which reduces the distraction created by the white stones in the background.
