Description: A lioness with a very focused look and intense eyes. She was in the presence of one of the salas pride males. I got this shot just before she decided to lay low and take a nap

Story from behind the lens: We set out for an evening game drive and had the idea of looking for game along the sand river. We found this female who was skittish around vehicles and she was not one of the salas pride female. With her was one of the salas pride males and they were mating.
