    Did You Know the roar of a lion can be heard 8 km (5 miles) away? That is one loud kitty.

    Wilderness: Amazing Animal Photography Showcase - Oops by Marsel van Oosten

  • Marcelo Baez

    As with most wildlife shots, there was quite a bit of luck involved to get this shot - after all, with wild animals you never know what's going to happen. Most wildlife photographers use long tele lenses to photograph potentially dangerous animals, and that is probably a wise thing to do. However, wide angle shots are often more dynamic, more in your face, so that's what I wanted to try in South Africa with lions. I used a radio controlled remote and shot from a handheld monopod, turned upside down, without getting out of the car. It's my secret (well, not anymore) technique to get low level perspective shots with wide angle lenses, while remaining flexible and without running the risk of getting eaten. This male lion did not appreciate the clicks coming from the grass very much, and decided to charge the D3. I guess he was more the Canon type... ©2010 Marsel van Oosten, All Rights Reserved.

Beautiful creatures - with around an estimated 20,000 left in the wild, they are right along side the polar bear for need of protection. The West African lion is considered critically endangered with only an estimated 406 left in the wild.
