Queen of the Savanna


Nice pussycat or stone-cold killer?  This lioness, together with her sister/ friend, were hiding out behind a termite mound, as some zebras serenely grazed a few hundred feet away.  But the wind was in the wrong direction, and they never got close to attacking.

She was no more than 10 feet away from me through an open window, but was supremely uninterested.  I had to wait quite awhile before managing to get any eye contact.

What are you thinking?
