    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.

One day in my living room, I will have a monstrous picture of a lion like this one. Be Fierce.

Too funny. This is what Sabrina thinks she is most of the time. Kitty looks just like her too.

I'll be honest here....... I think I would have to go get a new pair of shorts if I took this shot.

Because while some people are assholes, most are not, and animals tend to have more love than most humans. So glad to see a happy ending for these animals.
