Camera: Nikon D850

Lens: Nikkor 400mm f2.8

Aperture: 2.8

Shutter speed: 400

Description: Lion gave a flehman response after smelling grass.

Story from behind the lens: My guide Joseph Kool positioned the vehicle with the sun behind the lion. The subject stopped to smell some grass and then had a flehmen response. The air was cool enough that the lion's breath was visible in the back light.
