Photographing African Cats but it is an amazing and thrilling experience where you learn something new with each image you take. The photographic possibilities are endless, which make the challenge even greater.
As a photographer, I believe in not just coming home with beautiful photographs, but to learn as much as I can. What better way to tell a visual story and to learn about the behavior of the animal.
We had a tough time choosing the top five images since their were beautiful submissions. Thank you for all who contributed and please keep sharing in our new challenges to come.

This is the same male from the previous post, seen the next day. He was resting with some females after killing a zebra. It was very cloudy, so I opted for BandW instead.
