Description: A lioness quenching thirst from a puddle

Story from behind the lens: We wanted to get a head-on shot of this lioness walking on the track. As we went ahead of her we saw a small puddle of water by the side of the track. We anticipated that she will quench her thirst from it as she just finished a hearty meal. I got the vehicle parked close and parallel to the puddle and fixed the camera on a reversed monopod. I then placed the set up very close to the ground to get a very low angle of the lioness. As expected, she came to drink water from the puddle. I trigged the camera using the remote click facility of the mobile phone to take this low angle picture.
