Description: A male lion is well camouflaged in the tall grass waiting for approaching wildebeest during the migration of 2022.

Story from behind the lens: We were driving in the triangle is search of a large male leopard which we had heard was in the area as as there was allot of prey approaching here. This is what kept our eyes peeled to the possibility of him hiding in plain sight when suddenly we saw a slight movement of grass. It was when we investigated further we realised that we had hit a jackpot of this male lion lying in wait. Positioning the vehicle was a challenge as I was trying make a frame showing exactly what I could see and also probably what the lion could see. My guide Koriata did an excellent job with this and followed instructions very well. I present you what I felt was the best possible frame one could make given how well he was hidden.
