Description: The Lion Jumping across a stream

Story from behind the lens: Just as the sun dipped below the horizon and our guide had just spotted a lion. We followed the lion as it walked slowly towards a stream. The lion stopped at the edge of the stream and looked around. I lowered myself as much as I can hoping for this action shot. Then, with a powerful leap, the lion jumped across the stream and disappeared into shadows. I was so thrilled that I was able to capture this shot.
