I'm not a fan of special effects usually but your augmentation of the rain in this already brilliant shot of a drookit lion is inspired.

Thanks all, and thanks Pete for the HC. It crossed my mind at one point that the weather made the scene look a bit like Knowsley safari park in Merseyside but the Mara actually does get rain quite often!
