Practical Photography (UK) - - Wildlife Photographer Of The Year - by Isak Pre­to­rius

I had been ob­serv­ing the Mfuwe Lodge pride while they slept off a feast from a buf­falo kill the night be­fore. When this fe­male got up and walked off, I an­tic­i­pated that she might be go­ing for a drink, so I headed for the near­est wa­ter­hole. Sure enough, the li­on­ess ap­peared through the tall, rainy-sea­son grass and hunched down to drink, oc­ca­sion­ally look­ing up. I man­aged to cap­ture her gaze and her tongue at the same time. Canon 1D X MkII | 600mm | 1/400sec | f/4 | ISO 1600 Isak Pre­to­rius is a spe­cial­ist wildlife pho­to­graphic guide from South Africa.
