Lion splash

I was lucky enough to see a large male lion crossing a river early one morning. He got spooked by his thoughts of crocodiles, and started splashing through the last half of the crossing. It is a shot I have dreamed of for years, and was exhilarating watching it happen!

Location: Greater Kruger Park, South Africa
