Black & White Friday

Hi all…it’s that favourite day of the week again for most of you. In celebration of this I am sharing yet another one of my photographs that are close to my heart-one of my black and white ones. The photograph I am sharing with you today is of two young male lions that I came across on one of my drives. They were fighting over a female. As you can see the one male has gone onto his back. This is probably because he is trying to protect his back and hind legs as this is where lions attack the most when they fight or hunt. They rarely go for the neck, especially when fighting with other males because of the manes they have. The mane gets in the way and is also deceptive to the actual size of the male’s neck. This way he has his paws, claws and teeth are there to protect him. I also love the dust they kick up. Another one of the things I love about the Kalahari. Dust makes for interesting photography. This was taken with my Nikon D3 and Nikon 17-55mm F2.8.

Take a look and let me know what you think…

Have a great weekend guys and try get outdoors. Cheers til Monday…
