African Lion; Panthera leo; This lioness was photographed at Savuti in the north of Botswana. She had cubs two young cubs on the other side of the river, and was on her way to a shallow part of the river, looking to cross over. She had been walking for a long way already, and was moving very determinedly. I lowered my camera’s sensitivity, and chose a slow shutter speed, to capture her movement as she passed by. Canon 5Dmk2, Canon 70-200 f/2.8IS lens, handheld. Shutter speed 1/6s at f/20.0, iso 100.
