King of the Okavongo

Photo and caption by Cameron MacPhail

We saw this lion at first light, tracking him until I got close enough to capture this shot. The image doesn't do justice to the pure unrivaled majesty of the lion in this moment, but I think it tries hard enough. A truly special moment. Shot with a Canon 5D at f/5.6, 1/1000s.

Location: Okavongo Delta, Botswana, Africa
