The Stare

By chrispd101
A shot from our recent holiday in Namibia.

Spent 5 days in the phenomenal Etosha Park, where we saw lions almost every day.

We came across a pride about to cross the gravel road. This lioness stopped to stare straight at intimidating sight!!

Thanks for the comments...

What I didn't mention was that I was in the back of our vehicle with my wife driving...these guys kept looking at us in a very interested kind of way...and when they came closer, my electric window chose that moment to succumb to the dust and wouldn't close...certainly got my heart rate climbing!!

...and Canadamon...that shots coming in a few days! Got some shots of a different pride with a zebra kill...but thought I'd upload a few others'll be sick of lion photos before I'm done!

Again, thanks for the comments.
