Travel Photo of the Day (March 2)

On the way back to our camp our guide spied this female lion who was on the hunt. Not sure what she was hunting and to be honest I had mixed feelings about this. I know lions hunt in the wild. But I didn't want to see the kill. Luckily for me the guide didn't want to interfere with nature. We headed back to camp. Photo taken in the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

    Oh I know, I saw a very fresh kill in Chobe and it was grim.

  2. That’s the Circle of Life (to steal a film title). Not always easy to see or understand but all part of a great big wonderful world.

    I wonder if big cats are as fascinated by laser pointers as my little ruffians? Tho their might be unforeseen consequences to trying this out in the wild….

      That is an interesting question, but like you said, not sure I’m brave enough to conduct the study. They seem pretty intent on staying alive and probably wouldn’t mind letting me know that if I messed with them.

    I don’t like the killing part of nature, either, but it is the circle of life.

  5. Fergiemoto says:

    Yes, probably best not to interfere! Pretty cool to see this, though.

    Rippling muscles. 🙂

    Really great picture to see in the wild and not in a cage; and luckily what ever he sees is the opposite way!! Wouldn’t want to be in his path 🙂

    Don’t you just love lions – not that I’d like to take one home or anything! But they are lovely – I especially like the part where she’s walking away. Back to you. etc. etc.

  9. I’m with you on not seeing the kill. if i watch nature shows, i keep the remote in my hand for a quick channel change.
