Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
Their faces say they are playing and not hurting each other. I don't think mammals are ever too old to play
very lovely! precious!
Martin, well that is just amazing photography. I'm glad you were in a car or something protective. I guess the lionesses were not afraid of cars? I'm not sure if that's a good thing, but good for your photos. Does you camera do video clips? That would be a great couple of seconds of video, too.
Heather, I had a long lens and the pictures are taken out of a car so it was not dangerous at all... And they were just playing! They were of the same group, maybe sisters.
Martin, you should consider putting this picture in the Best Wildlife Mission. It is a very nice shot. Do they hurt each other? They look too old to be playing. Do you know what they are "arguing" over?
I sure hope that you had a long zoom lens or are you not worried about them spotting you spotting them? I would be afraid but I don't ever get to see big animals in anything but a zoo.
Dear Alice, thanks for your comment, of course i am aware that captivity should be mentioned but a look at the locality which is the masai mara national park would have indicated the status of wild lions.
Looks like sparring lions! Are these in the wild or in a Zoo. If they are in a zoo it needs always to be put on your page. Thank You.
