I worked hard to get into the right position to watch this lioness dash across the Savute Marsh in Northern Botswana. The motivation being that there is always action (worth capturing with a fast shutter speed) when a powerful animal such as this moves swiftly through the water. Her expression tells of her anxiety to cross the river quickly for fear of crocodiles and to catch up with her fellow pride members.
