Sunday Nature Stills – 12/23/2018

I photographed this lioness in the Ngorongoro Crater in northern Tanzania.  It was mid-day, and several lionesses of a small pride came very close to us to take advantage of some rare shade.  They looked strong, lean, and healthy. I like all the subtly coloring in her fur.

P.s.  The little flies seem to be attracted to any source of water or moisture.

  1. Just saw a piece on TV about lizards that love to find sleeping lions/lionesses and eat those flies! Precarious business, as the lizards are very little and easily crushed! Her fur reminds me a lot of Taz’s coloring.
